Single Parenting: Empower Your Children & Yourself
Core strategies to help solo parents foster cooperation, set boundaries, and empower children / 2 sessions
Parenting during a pandemic is hard. Solo parenting in a pandemic is in a class all on its own. Regardless of your circumstances – divorce, death or absence of a co-parent, adoption – households with one parent are experiencing unique challenges. Single parents have to manage the demands of working, schooling, feeding the family, and parenting decisions by themselves.
In this two-part series, discover how to stay encouraged, resourceful and sane while remaining connected with your children. We'll share how core PEP strategies can help solo parents foster cooperation, set boundaries, and empower children to contribute to the family's success and well-being. Each 45-minute session is a little shorter than our usual webinars to fit into your busy schedule, with 30 minutes of content and 15 minutes of Q&A.
- issues of time – or lack thereof – in a single parent's day
- cultivating patience and empathy for children and self
- finding confidence in making parenting decisions alone
- setting boundaries as a solo parent
- building your children's independence and social interest
- unique topics to single parenting such as dealing with differences when children split time between two households and children’s grief toward not having a “normal” parental unit.
Registration includes handouts and recordings to watch later.
For parents of children of all ages.
In addition to teaching specific skills, these programs are also designed to help single parents not feel alone in addressing their unique challenges.
To continue the community discussion and connection, and to provide ongoing and targeted support to single parents, PEP’s February Encouragement! master class will be offered to single parents only. We hope you will take advantage of this unique opportunity to learn and practice parenting adapted to your unique circumstances, and in confidence with a group of peers.
