Parental education: fresh ideas for parents

Parental education: fresh ideas for parents

Being a parent is an exciting, multifaceted but also demanding task. The cohabitation with children can be challenging. Parents are role models but are not and don’t have to be perfect.

Parental education supports parents through different offers as for example parent-child activities, parent cafés, presentations and courses. These opportunities to exchange and network with other parents can support and relieve parents. Also, parents are provided with information on their child’s developmental stage, are encouraged to listen to their intuition as well as to the needs of their children and family. Parental education fosters parents’ educational and communication competencies as well as their ability to solve conflicts and aims at addressing the needs of all families confronted with various subjects and situations.

In Switzerland different organisations host offers in parental education – women’s organisations, institutions connected to the church, parent associations and family clubs. All cantons in the region of northwestern Switzerland have a bureau for parental education.
