Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this curriculum is to provide Christian parents with parenting strategies that are both supported by scripture and research. Using information gathered from development theory, attachment theory, social learning theory, and strategies found to be effective in evidence-based parenting programs, this curriculum seeks to provide parents with effective relationship skills, discipline strategies, and guidelines for solving common parenting problems. The curriculum is meant to be a general guide to parenting rather than a set of practices focused on a particular age group. The curriculum consists of seven modules that are designed for delivery in a group setting to English-speaking parents. The modules focus on improving parent mental health (Re-Frame), promoting consistency (Ritual), increasing communication skills (Relationship), enhancing attachment (Responsive), educating about parenting style (Respect), developing healthy boundaries (Responsibility), and applying effective discipline strategies (Rebuke). Each session consists of a lecture, interactive activity, and homework.
