This Year’s Highlights

We have had another busy year for the NLFRP! Here are a few of the highlights:

“Positive Discipline in Everyday Parenting” was hosted by the NLFRP in Gander on October 19-21, 2015. This training was developed by Joan Durrant, PhD, University of Manitoba, for Save the Children Sweden in 2007. “Positive Discipline” is non-violent and respects the child as a learner. It is an approach to teaching that helps children succeed, gives them information, and supports their growth. The training was facilitated by Shamail Khalil and Alana Garcia of Mosaic from Winnipeg, Manitoba. Twenty-five participants received training and the feedback was very positive. The NLFRP has partnered with the Public Health Agency of Canada, Department of Seniors, Wellness and Social Development, Department of Education and Early Childhood Development and Regional Health Authorities in the revitalization of the Nobody’s Perfect Parenting Program and the delivery of Nobody’s Perfect Facilitator Training throughout the province. Nobody’s Perfect was originally developed in the 1980s and since its beginning it has had a profound impact on the development of community-based parenting
