NAMEParent Awareness Workshop
NAMEInfant and Toddler Parent Awareness WorkshopDay 18:00 AM:Toilet Learning aka “Potty Training”The learning goals for this lesson are:The science behind toilet learning and how the anatomy of an infant’s body plays a role in when the child is ready to use the toiletTeach parents how to encourage children and what to avoid while they are learningCultural and individual family’s beliefs on when and how to start toilet trainingMaterials that I would use for this activity is an informative video which includes some advice from Dr. Ari Brown who is a pediatrician and author. This video is specifically for parents to teach their kids how to potty train. . I chose this video because it can give parents a good starting point when first learning to potty train children from an accredited doctor. I chose this activity because toilet learning is a complex developmental milestone and should notbe taken lightly (Swim & Watson, 2011). Also, toilet training can be a very frustrating task but with advice on how to be encouraging to learning toddlers, it can make the experience very rewarding for parents and children. -A brief five-minute break will be given between 8:00 AM and 9:00 AM9:00 AM:Selecting a Good CaregiverTh learning goals for this lesson are:Teaching parents what to look for in a child care program What questions to ask staff when touring child care facilities such as what training the staff has, if there is a set schedule in place, if special accommodations can be made, how the caregivers deal with discipline, if the environment is sanitary, etc. (Child Care, 2010).Give advice on how to prevent problems when issues occur with caregiver and how to manage problems when they do occur (Workshops, n.d.)The materials that I would use for this activity is a virtual day care facility that is purposefully setup with hazards such as dirty floors, open electrical outlets, open cabinets, etc. to see if the parents can identify these items as we “tour” the facility. The program would also allow parents to interact with the “caregivers” by asking them questions from a list, and listening to the
NAMEcaregiver’s response to identify potential problems with the facility and how they run things. This resource is very interactive and can help parents spot flaws or good signs of potential caregivers. I chose this activity because not every parent can stay at home and raise their child each and every day. Most parents will utilize a caregiver at some point and it is very important that parentsare educated on what to look for when picking a facility or person for the job. 10:00 AM:How to Deal with Teething InfantsThe learning goals for this activity are:Identifying when infants usually begin to teeth which is usually around 4 to 7 months (New Parents, n.d.)Tips and tricks to best help teething infants such as giving a chilled slice of banana, using
