Parenting workshops in collaboration with The Hague municipality

What do you want your children to learn from you? How can parents teach their teenagers responsibility? Do children understand differences between rules at home and at school ?

These were some of the intriguing questions that were discussed in the parenting workshop series at elementary school Het Galjoen in the Transvaal district of The Hague, as a spin-off from Transvaal University.

The workshops were led by Prof. Dr. Judi Mesman, and supported by Fonda Sahla (parent coordinator at het Galjoen), and the The Hague municipality. The group of mothers shared experiences, had lively discussions about different parenting strategies, and attended parenting lectures at the Wijnhaven building and at Leiden University College The Hague.

On March 21, the mothers came to LUC for the final session, to attend a summary lecture about all the themes from the previous sessions, and to receive their workshop certificates. The group is already making plans for follow-up activities, starting with a delicious Turkish breakfast next week.
