The First Nations Health Authority and National Collaborating Centre for Aboriginal Health re-launch parenting resources grounded in Indigenous Knowledge
The First Nations Health Authority (FNHA) and the National Collaborating Centre for Aboriginal Health (NCCAH) are pleased to re-launch the following four resources for First Nations and Indigenous parents and caregivers in British Columbia: Growing Up Healthy; Family Connections; Parents as First Teachers; and Fatherhood is Forever.
Originally developed in 2013 by the FNHA and the NCCAH, the 2019 parenting booklets include updated guidelines and resources for parents and caregivers of children up to six years of age. All of the booklets are grounded in Indigenous Knowledge and traditional approaches to parenting and send the message that “Even if you did not have the parenting that you wanted or needed, you can become the parent your child needs.” Each of the booklets shares specific aspects of parenting and childrearing.
• Fatherhood is Forever - discusses the important parenting role of fathers, including learning about being a positive role model for children and some of the different approaches they can take to deal with different situations.
