I would like to find more ways to get parent’s talking so I find out what they already know.
Neighborhood a parent lives in.
I like that PIPE is experiential. Experiences are our best teachers. Ideas do not give me feedback and an experience does.
My gut reaction is based on my own past and may have nothing to do with who the parent is in reality.
How quickly the little boy becomes unregulated when his mom did not respond as expected.
We learn about parenting from the way we were parented
I like that the emphasis is on what the child needs. This approach is less likely to raise a parent’s defenses than if I focused on what a parent is to do.
I like that it is interactive
I like that it is interactive as well. I think hands on is often an easier way for most of us to learn.
I would like to improve my skill of recognizing strengths in very resistive parents
Things aren’t always as they seem
The powerful effect that the mom withdrawing her response had on her child!
I like that the focus is on what the baby needs instead of what the parent is doing wrong.
I learned that there is an incredible amount of information contained in the curriculum and several good tools to help you locate what you might need or be looking for.
I learned that there is a lot of valuable information in the parent handouts.
There are a lot of options for sharing information in the Parent Handouts.
I noticed that the format contains additional information and lists that assist you in preparing a lesson. It gives a knowledge base in case you are lacking information about a topic. It also gives you lists that help you think through the supplies and materials you may need to teach your lesson without needing to read through the whole lesson.
I noticed the format of the Educator’s Guide is easy to follow after having each section pointed out to me.
I re-learned how many systems the PIPE Curriculum has to assist you in finding things, planning a session and staying organized.
I re-learned that a child’s relationship with their parent becomes a model for future relationships.
That doing it without a small child present is much easier than when doing it only with an adult.
