The Positive Parenting Program is an effective, practical approach to raising children that emphasizes the positive. Triple P is based on strong nurturing relationships, good communication and positive attention to help children develop. It involves creating a family environment that is loving, supportive and predictable.
A new program has arrived in Manitoba focusing on reducing women’s risk of having an alcohol exposed pregnancy. We are the first province in Canada to roll out this FASD prevention strategy!
“Your Choice For Your Reasons” is a pregnancy options resource package for teens and service providers. It was produced by Healthy Child Manitoba in partnership with the Adolescent Parent Interagency Network (APIN) and with assistance from a number of community organizations. The resource package includes a video, service provider handbook and a brochure. The video is intended to help Manitoba teenagers who are faced with a pregnancy explore the options available to them, including parenting, adoption and abortion.
It is hoped this resource package will be a useful and effective tool for service providers working with adolescents who are faced with the hard decision of determining which pregnancy option is best. The “Your Choice For Your Reasons” resource package can be ordered through Healthy Child Manitoba or you can download a copy from the link above.
