Raising a Thinking Child (RaTC) Training, Coaching, and Consultation for Parent Educators
During this training for parent educators, participants will learn how to deliver the RaTC parent program to parents and families within the organizations they represent. Raising a Thinking Child (RaTC) is a companion program to the evidence-based classroom program, I Can Problem Solve (ICPS) program, developed by Dr. Myrna Sure. In addition to addressing social emotional learning for children, Raising a Thinking Child touches on cognitive learning and builds vocabulary that prepares children for success in school. Raising a Thinking Child is designed to help parents learn to talk with children, ages 4-8, about problem solving using an approach which involves children in the process of thinking about what they do and why they do it. RaTC provides parents with young children with concrete, interactive activities to help their children learn to solve “people” problems. The activities give guidance to parents for having conversations with their children that promote ways for children to resolve everyday conflicts and get along with others.
