In association with the H.E.L.P (Health! Elevating Living Practices) project; the “I am Belize Scholarship Program held it four part series on “parenting” where Fifteen parents were invited to share their views about parenting in a modern Belizean society. The H.E.L.P project is a newly formed association attached to the GoJoven program geared towards forging discussions among parents and their children of the Scholarship program as it relates to Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health.
The four part series covered topics on parenting styles, discipline vs. punishment and identifying their child’s personality type in an effort to create a plan tailored to promoting a healthier line of communication between child and parent. It has been discussed that the four-part series is to extend its tenure to two more sessions which would encompass the formulation of a communication plan.
