Te Awhi (The Embrace)

Te Awhi parenting program works with the parents of the young people involved with Challenge for Change. The aim of the program is to equip parents with strategies to support their children in a way that emphasise the positive effects of Challenge for Change.  Parents are nurtured, guided and inspired to embrace their role as parents and create a loving family.

As part of the sessions parents gain insight into the lives of our children, while being reminded of the importance of fun and laughter. We also explore positive, fun and practical strategies to try at home.

We acknowledge that children learn from us based on what we do rather than what we say and being a positive role model and helping to guide our children when making choices helps us to be the best parents we can be.
