To give birth to children, by far, is the easier part of the job, as against raising them up to become responsible citizens. This program design is such that we start from the basics, study some of the enemies of our children, analyze our methods of parenting, deliberate over various methods of discipline, deal with handling teenagers, and finally, look at how to pass on the baton to the next generation. Much of the learning will be supported by the facilitator’s personal experience of parenting their children, failures and victories. The program is an attempt to bring back the value of family life.
