Implementing the activities of the Parents Council program: challenges of parenting in the 21st century

In the school year 2017, members of the Parents Council of the Primary School “Hamdija Kreševljaković” recognized the needs of parents and suggested education for parents.

In the first phase, lectures are overlooked. In the second phase, parents who receive education in their classes will present their experiences and carry out an evaluation together with other parents. In the third phase, workshops with children and parents are planned, and in the fourth phase, there will be a joint gathering of all students, parents and teachers in one of the nearby mountains with organized tournaments, games without borders, competitions in different skills.

In the implementation of the first phase, on November 22, 2017, a lecture was organized on the topic of “The Challenges of Parenting in the 21st Century”, which was presented to parents by PhD Mirela Badurina, Gestalt and Integrative child and adolescent psychotherapist.
