Parenting Program for parents with children ages 3-6 years
The Incredible Years Preschool Basic parenting program strengthens
parent-child interactions and attachment, reducing harsh discipline and
fostering parents' ability to promote children's social, emotional, and
language development. Parents also learn how to build school readiness
skills and are encouraged to partner with teachers and day care
professionals so they can promote children's emotional regulation
and social skills. In the parenting groups, trained Incredible Years®
facilitators use video clips of real-life situational vignettes to support
the training and trigger parenting group discussions, problem solving,
and practice exercises.
