The Child Protection Authority (CPA) recognises that positive parenting skills are necessary attributes to reduce or eliminate incidents of child abuse.
To this end, with funding from the United Nations Children Funds (UNICEF), the CPA is undertaking training in Level 3 Parenting Facilitation.
Offered by the Grenada National Training Agency (GNTA), the Caribbean Vocational Qualification (CVQ) course is expected to produce 20 trained facilitators by the end of the second quarter of 2019.
The goal, thereafter, would be to conduct parenting sessions within various communities.
The authority believes that providing this kind of support to parents would promote positive behaviour among parents and children in 2019.
