two 9-week practical parenting courses three times a year, beginning in January, May and September.
The first course, called 'The Formative Years,' is about children aged 0 to 10 years. The second course, called 'The Challenging Years,' is about children and young people aged 10 to 21 years.
Course content includes:
The true essence of the child
The 5 senses
The organs of action - speech, use of hands, walking and eating
Aspects of a child's nature
Love and discipline
Having a concept of a civilised being for the child
Honour thy father and thy mother
The 3 needs of a child : father, mother, teacher
The 3 great influences on a child: family, school, society
The future for the child based on truth and goodness
Anyone who has experienced an SES upbringing will recognise many of the above as aspects of the SES 'philosophy' which caused so much damage to children at St James under the Debenham / Caldwell / MacLaren regime. Having watched the Debenham interview on newsnight (see http://www.corpun.com/vidsc.htm), the inclusion of 'civilised child' and 'love and discipline' send a tingle down my spine.
Does anyone know where the funding for these 'parenting' courses is coming from?
