GEG Parenting Education Scheme “Decoding Adolescents’ Language” training course
Positive parenting practices in early childhood is important in building a solid foundation for children in learning, developing relationships, and in preventing problematic behavior. The Galaxy Entertainment Foundation launched the GEG Parenting Education Scheme, commissioning a series of parenting education programme particularly for shift-working parents of children at different age groups, in view of the parents’ difficulties in their ability to spend quality time with their children. This year, with a newly-developed training module catered for parents of adolescents between the ages of 10 and 14, the programme taught participants crucial parenting skills to enhance their parent-child relationship, through activities such as role-playing, group discussions and games. The Foundation hopes that the training will eventually be widely promoted to the community, hoping to promote individual, family and social well-being.
GEG Parenting Education Scheme
Effective parenting in early childhood is important in building a solid foundation for children in learning, developing relationships, and in preventing problematic behaviour. The Foundation considers parenting courses to be particularly important for shift workers, in particular those who are working in the gaming/hospitality industries and parents with young children, since their shift work-hours make it difficult for them to spend time together with their children. A parenting education scheme is therefore piloted, targeting parents who are shift-workers, on various parenting topics conducted over multi-sessions to help them to better understand themselves and their children, thus enhancing their mutual relationship as well as promote individual, family and social wellbeing.
