A parenting skills workshop was held in Baie Ste Anne Praslin and was attended by 18 parents. The workshop was held at the Baie Ste Anne Primary School from 9.00am to 2.30 pm.
Participants were from various backgrounds but most attended following a request from the school or from the psychologist working there on the island, Ms Karine Trouillier.
The workshop was facilitated by The NCC Training Coordinator. Ms Maryline Sinon assisted by the NCC Counsellor, Mr Gerard Lim Sam and Ms Trouillier herself. Although participation level was somewhat limited, the workshop went smoothly with participants exposed to the four basic components essential in parenting. A few parents had some questions in relation to some particular behaviours they had observed in their children and were happy to receive some answers which they claimed will help them further in their parenting.
