Raising Highly Capable Kids Training - Light

Raising Highly Capable Kids is a 13-week curriculum that is based on the Search Institute’s 40 Developmental Assets which are building blocks for healthy development. Search Institute has undertaken decades of research with more than 5 million children and found that there are 40 building blocks every child needs to grow and mature. And the more of these Assets a child has in her life, the more likely she is to engage in healthy behaviours while veering away from those that are unhealthy. This evidence-based course helps parents raise healthy, caring, and responsible children.

In the world we’re living in – communication with our children is vital. Join this essential 4-session online training via Zoom (Raising Highly Capable Kids Training – Light), which will equip you with the tools to impact your children to grow into healthy, caring and responsible adults. The training will take place on the 5, 12, 19 and 26 March between 11am and 12pm. While we encourage you to attend all 4 sessions (brief synopsis of each session below) you may select to attend individual sessions too. The cost is R50 per session.
