WHAT WE DO
Parenting Partners Caribbean pioneered a movement, and morphed over the years as demands and activities changed. We continue to address socially and contextually relevant issues related to parenting and use a strengths-based, participatory methodology, in keeping with evidence on adult learning principles.
Our core values included a high level of mutual respect, personal rapport and support, collective ownership and responsibility despite the necessity of disproportionate contributions by members.

The FAMILY FOCUS Discussion Guide and Facilitator's Manual were developed under the Spotlight Initiative with Unicef. The FAMILY FOCUS Discussion Guide is designed to encourage parents and family members to recognize their strengths and work on areas they wish to make better as a family.
The Discussion Guide consists of twenty-nine (29) parenting topics within Volumes I and II. Each session provides kick-start and concluding activities, information for sharing in and guiding group discussions, and directions to other sources of help or advice. The selected sessions in the FAMILY FOCUS Discussion Guide are a direct outcome of suggestions from parents who participated in the Formative Research conducted in 2020.
