Narrator Daphne Maxwell-Reid supports the group leader's teaching
by reinforcing key points before showing a more encouraging
way to handle the situation. (This is also helpful to parents
who may borrow the video from your resource library.) Again,
put yourself in Jada's shoes and see what you would think, feel,
and do this time.
Best practices make better classes
According to "Parent Education to Strengthen Families and Reduce the Risk of Maltreatment," a 2013 publication
of the US Department of Health and Human Services,
methods, as opposed to didactic lecturing, are a key aspect of
successful parent education programs and include activities such
as group discussion, role playing, active modeling, homework
exercises, and reviewing videos of effective parenting approaches
With video, activities, "show and tell," group discussion,
and weekly Family Enrichment Activities (homework), Active
Parenting of Teens meets all those requirements and more!
