Parenting Workshops for Adult ESL class

Aqeela Saddiqui SWIS News

Our SWIS workers arranged very interesting parenting workshops for the Adult ESL class on Oct 15, 16 and 22nd at Lord Dufferin Public School in partnership with Toronto Public Health.

The groups discussed topics such as Child behaviour, Nutrition/Healthy Eating and Heart Health.

 

The attendees received a couple of important tips from the Canada Food Guide, including:

1.How to eat healthy within a budget

2.How to manage their children’s behaviour

3. How to support their children if they exhibit difficult behaviour

The learning experience took form in different formats, making the workshops fun and very educational at the same time! A poster of the amount of sugar found in common beverages (such as coke, juice, etc.) motivated the students to watch out for their health every day, the poster is now found in their classroom as a gentle reminder.
