What is the purpose?
The parenting component of the TWOgether Pittsburgh initiative provides support to married parents who are looking for some additional ways to approach the task of parenting as a team.
Who should be involved?
This program is tailored for married parents who desire to grow in their unity as parents. TWOgether Pittsburgh promotes the concept of team parenting as a way to effectively promote healthy marriages and families.
How will the program work?
There are multiple tracks and formats to meet the needs of the constituency that is being addressed. Initial offerings include a fatherhood piece designed to increase the involvement and skills of fathers as part of the parenting team. There will also be a couple focused module which will emphasize parents working together in the parenting process. These modules can be delivered as a weekend intensive or a seven week series that promotes more in-depth exploration of the issues.
What topics will be discussed?
Topics range from maintaining self-care to discipline. Couples will be guided through ways of approaching sensitive issues and topics of potential conflict, as well as practicing praise and building self-worth in children. Couples will leave with the tools to function as an effective team to build a healthy family.
