When people ask Sue Baldwin to describe the type of training and consulting that she conducts with clients, "personal and professional development" is her response. Participants who work with Sue in either small or large groups learn that the material she presents will influence both their personal and professional lives. Sue supports and encourages people to look at the values and passions that influence their lives. Commitment and dedication are important concepts that will make a difference in how we interact with others as well as choose the careers that give us meaning.

Building positive relationships with parents

Many families are being run by children rather than the parents.  One of the roles of the child care professional is to help build a bridge between the families and the program.
Relationships do not just happen; they are built on many fundamentals with one of the main concepts being trust.  The parents need to trust the child care professional and know that the information which is passed on to them is in strict confidence.  Confidentiality does not apply to any child abuse or neglect, as people who work in the child care field are mandated reporters.
This workshop/breakout session is designed for people who care for other people's children, whether in groups or individual settings. During the class, participants will learn how to:

  • Assess their own values and match them with the parents' values
  • Respectfully partner with parents while dealing with their child(ren)
  • Communicate with parents on both an informal and formal basis
  • Address the concerns of parents with regards to their expectations

Do you question the match between the parents' expectations and your goals? 
Are some of the parents placing unreasonable demands on the staff? 
Do the parents you work with seem stressed out and overextended
?
