As parents, we have to come to terms with the fact that the world we grew up in as kids no longer exists. The 21st century is a different ball game and comes with a lot of challenges when it comes to raising children. The world as we know it is fast changing; our kids live in a totally different world and are largely influenced by their surroundings, hence the need for a different approach to parenting. Parenting has never been an easy task; but has become even more demanding as parents now have to ensure the emotional and mental well-being of their children, unlike in the past.
The complexities and fast pace of the 21st century is changing children and making parenting a herculean task. When it comes to the task of raising a child in the 21st century, a lot of questions need answering as a parent. Some of which are:
- Do you know your parenting style?
- Are you aware of how it affects your child?
- How prepared are you to help your child navigate the complexities of this modern world.
To help you answer these questions effectively, we would like to invite you to our parents’ equipper series.
As a company committed to leading the revolution in skills development, Arc Skills seeks to equip parents with the skills they need to effectively raise the 21st century child. Other solutions to help the 21st century child include the Arc Skills Teacher training and the SOAR Pathway, a research-backed programme by experts on 21st century skills readiness and development of critical 21st century skills such as creativity, innovation, collaboration, self-management and critical thinking.
This edition of the Arc Skills Parents equipper series is themed- “Parenting in the 21st Century”, and will be holding on Saturday, 25th May, 2019 at Plot 5, Balogun Street, Billings Way, Oregun Ikeja, Lagos, Nigeria by 10am.
The training will feature effective parenting styles, discussions on real life scenarios and case studies; a chance to network with other parents while working with trained facilitators.
