Family Management Core (B2E)

Family Management Core (B2E)

It all comes down to RELATIONSHIP.

The Birth2Eigteen Healthy Parenting Training Program (B2E), based on The Nurturing Parenting Programs evidence-based, trauma-informed, and family-centered curriculum model, enhances what moms and dads already know about parenting, while providing them with additional family management and life skills, plus access to the family resources in the community that improve family relationships, and encourage the entire family to lead productive and successful lives.

A Tool for FAMILY SUCCESS

B2E is a customizable curriculum that can be geared around circumstances (truancy, recovery, etc.), stages of child development (ages 0-3, ages 4-7, ages 8-12, and ages 13-18), or in combination with other skills (home management, finance, health, etc.).

What can be expected in every version of B2E

    • Nurturing
      Parents have the responsibility of teaching their children social skills (aka, good behavior) and life skills, so that they’ll be able to survive and achieve their goals. Parents learn how to strengthen their positive parenting skills, while finding alternatives to the negative parenting skills (e.g., hitting, shaking, yelling, or saying hurtful things) they’ve learned to use.
    • Self-Image
      Building and maintaining self-esteem in ourselves, and in our children, is one of the most important responsibilities of parenting. Your children’s success in life greatly depends on their self-image and how they feel about themselves.
    • Communication
      Good communication is the foundation of all good relationships. To communicate well, we must listen, be open, use appropriate body language, and express (vs. act out) our feelings in an honest way.
    • Stages of Human Development
      Understanding the different stages of development helps parents better manage their children’s behaviors, while allowing them to grow and mature normally.
    • Socialization
      There are a variety of ways to manage our kids and their behavior.
    • Choices and Consequences
      Choices and consequences are parenting behaviors you can use when your children are old enough to understand what a “choice” is and what a “consequence” is. To use this kind of discipline, children must be old enough to control their behavior.
    • Values
      Our values decide how we live our life and why we live it the way we do. Everyone has different values, and those values may change at different times during life. Some values are learned as you grow up, while others are learned through the experiences you have (e.g., when you were a teenager, your values may have focused on material things, like music, cars).
    • Play
      It is so important for parents to play with their kids, as it helps to create and solidify a healthy relationship. And play comes in a variety of forms, limited only by one’s imagination.
    • Safety and Home Management
      Safety is the most important factor to achieving a sense of wellbeing in life.
    • Social Ills
      Social ills (e.g., substance use disorders, violence, suicide, etc.) impact the life circumstances of ALL families today.
