Parent Engagement

Be Empowered to Help Your Children

Children are not born with social and emotional skills. As parents and guardians, we are our children’s first teachers. We can model and teach the skills of emotional intelligence (EQ):

Self-awareness
Self-management
Social awareness
Relationship skills
Responsible
decision-making

Parent Workshops

At Frameworks, we empower adults to help children build these skills that our children need for personal, social, academic, and one day professional success.

Each workshop offers user-friendly tips and tools so that parents leave with a plan. Workshops are tailored to meet your goals and can be held in person or virtually, in English or in Spanish. Workshops can be held as one-time learning opportunities or as a series.

It was good for me to hear that it’s ok to focus on one goal at a time with the kids and myself. Try not to accomplish too much too soon. It’s ok to go at a slow pace. This is all new and to be patient with all these mixed feelings. Thank you so much for your time and these tools.
