In effort to support and
empower parents of young
children in the UAE, Salama
bint Hamdan Al Nahyan
Foundation, in collaboration
with Yale University, will host a
series of Parenting Workshops
from 6 January until 6 May
2014.
Based on the scientific research
and focused on Early Childhood
Development (ECD), the series
of workshops is among the
initiatives of the Foundation.
With a core belief that ages 0-3
years are crucial for setting a
foundation for later learning,
wellbeing, and happiness, its aim
is to emphasise that parents’
love for, investment in, and
commitment to their children,
leads to a greater likelihood the
children will be well adjusted,
happy and productive adults.
Beginning in January, the
parenting workshops are to
be conducted for two days
each month by ECD experts
from Yale University. They
will present lectures and
facilitate activities in a variety
of formats for people who play
an important role in the daily
care and nurturance of a young
child which includes parents,
grandparents, other family
members as well as professionals
of ECD. Also, attendees will be
given an option of attending the
workshop either at Jumeirah at
Etihad Towers, Abu Dhabi, or
at Tawam Hospital Polyclinic,
Al Ain.
The topics for the workshops
include parents’ contributions
to their child’s development, a
child’s emotional intelligence,
the father’s role in childcare,
health habits, and best practices
for setting limits with children.
