Speaker News & Events
Rene Howitt, author of the DVD and COPE24 founder, was a presenter at GATFACS in January of 2012 leading the session entitled “Better Parenting Skills: Reducing Child Abuse Through Youth… Our Future Parents.” I was privileged to have Ms. Howitt in my classroom for a day prior to the conference. She shared personal stories, clips from the Parenting Skills Program, and listened to concerns voiced by my students. The Parenting Skills Program includes two scenarios, a positive and a negative, concerning several areas of potential conflict for parents. Areas include Crying Baby, Co-Sleeping/Bed Sharing, Bedtime, Tantrum, Potty Training, Negative Parenting, Homework, Dress/Clothing, Report Card, and Sexual Abuse. These informative clips have prompted in-depth discussion with and among my students.
