Raising Highly Capable Kids Training For Parents
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.
