    Published on October 20, 2018

    JiNa-Livingpositively, a Counselling institution organized a 5 days’ Parenting Expert Program workshop at its center in Gurugram last week. The workshop was conducted, facilitated by Dr. Chinu Agarwal, renowned Psychologist and Psychotherapist and Founder of Feeling Minds.

    The workshop was basically about how parents should connect, bond and bring forth their children in today’s times. There is a need for change in parenting. In the 21st century, we cannot totally depend on old parenting skills and tools. Parental skills need to be renewed.

    “Parents are not only the primary caregivers of their children but are also their primary educators. As children grow and develop at different stages, it is important for parents to be mindful of those different developmental stages of a child. Parenting is a journey and not a destination. It even continues when one becomes a grandparent with new milestones. Conscious, aware and involved parents do not blame the situations but always work on sharpening, polishing their own parenting skills and tools.” says Kavita Yadav, Founder Director and a Certified Parenting Expert of JiNa-Livingpositively.

    Participating stakeholders included Parents, School teachers, Gynecologist, and the people who wanted to build their carrier in Counselling. JiNa-Livingpositively and Feeling Minds have collaborated with each other and plan to conduct this signature certified Parenting Expert Program every year for Parents and others who want to know the scientific tools for parenting.

    Kavita Yadav adds that “It is extremely important to understand that every child has his/her own unique personality, identity, nature, skills, capacity to think and aptitude. Mantra for practical parenting is to nurture a child with a healthy mix of warmth and control. There is no shame attached if we visit a counselor for our daily behavioral, parental or relationship challenges. It’s time to break the silence and speak out.”
