Positive Parenting “Snap Shots”

posted by Diane McGregor

KW Counselling Services has been offering quality positive parenting programs throughout Waterloo Region for over 50 years. Accredited under the Canadian Centre for Accreditation Family Life Education Standards, our Parenting with Passion programs cover a wide range of topics designed for parents and other adults interested in the wellbeing of children and adolescents. 

Our courses reflect our commitment to fresh, innovative and proven practices. All of our course curricula have been updated with the latest information about attachment, brain processes, emotion regulation and positive discipline. Our facilitators are highly skilled adult educators who bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to their work. We strive to keep our courses fresh, informative, and interactive.

Our parenting approach is grounded in principles of positive parenting. Positive parenting is an approach that emphasizes the role of connection and healthy attachment in the parent-child relationship. It helps parents understand how this relationship is the key to building the skills that children and youth need to be healthy and happy.

In the Fall of 2019, we ran a series of one-hour positive parenting “snap shots”. These were brief, topic-specific seminars designed to get participants thinking about their choices as a parent and developing strategies to become the parent they want to be.

The fall series was tremendously successful so we have decided to run the same series in our Winter 2020 Schedule. Check our our schedule and come join us!
