HEALTHY HABITS FOR BUSY FAMILIES

Workshop for parents and caregivers of children 5-12 years old. Parents and caregivers participate in four, weekly, 60-minute workshops that provide the education and tools to begin modeling healthy habits and introducing healthy behaviors to the young people in their family. Gain support in developing the skills to make small changes in the home that will improve the well-being of everyone in the family. The structure of the program is based on the premise that the parents and main caregivers in a child’s life are the most important teachers. Child and adolescent weight management is complex, as such, we focus on helping participants build a robust toolbox of skills through utilizing scenario learning, role playing, video content, and case studies.
