Developing positive parenting skills

Parenting is a unique, challenging and complex development task for which one is often neither sufficiently skilled nor prepared. Families today face numerous challenges and high expectations. At the same time, social support and professional support programmes which are supposed to help parents fulfil their role and build competencies for boosting children’s early growth and development are lacking.

Through its Let’s Grow up Together program, the INF has educated and trained educators and professionals at kindergartens across BiH to work with parents. Parents who attended the workshops learned how to raise their children in accordance with recent scientific findings, recognise and adequately respond to their developmental needs, build a good relationship with them, set boundaries and discipline the children, without compromising parental love and affection.
