What else can be added to increase the level of training development? Initially, it would be better to attract volunteers to participate in the project. Pre-create additional forms for volunteers and ask them specific questions that can be posted. These questions can help you become more specific when choosing them. It would be nice if these volunteers are young people who work in social services or have previously participated in projects. At the same time, volunteers who can work with children can be more effective. During the project, volunteers can be used to organise technical details of the project( negotiations, city tours and etc.) and other issues.
Secondly, it would be better to create a special playroom or zone for children and play toys and games appropriate to their age. When children play in this area, parents can relax and take part in the training as active listeners.
Thirdly, it is good to find ways how to keep children involved in the process. This can help both parents spend time with their children and show them how to get their children involved in the work process.
It would be great to add special foods for children for lunch and tea hours/coffee break. (fruits, yoghurt, dried fruits, etc.). It will also help children eat fewer sweets and eat more healthy during training. Because many parents don’t give sweets at home, but the child sees it in training and, as a result, eats more sweets than he/she can eat at home. For this, you can add a small amount to the fee.
It may be useful to increase the number of practical exercises and organize workshops.
Small sessions may be useful for participants to share their parenting experiences. If there is a psychologist or a social worker and teacher among the participants, they can share their experience and knowledge with other parents. at the same time, parents can share the solutions they find with their children.
Parents and non-parents can take turns taking care of and playing with children
