The Bringing Up Great Kids program and the BUGK Early Years program is built on the understanding that parents need good support to be the kind of parents they aspire to be. It recognises the significant challenges faced by parents and provides self-care strategies for them. It also helps parents understand that there is no perfect recipe for raising great kids.
The program uses ideas of mindfulness and reflection to support parents to review and enhance their patterns of communication with their children. It promotes respectful interactions and encourages the development of children’s positive self-identity.
BUGK is fun, interactive and guilt-free. The focus is not on acquiring skills to improve children’s behaviour but offers a general overview about parenting. It gives parents practical help to understand the emotional development of their children, develop attentive communication skills with them, and enjoy the two-way learning journey of parenthood.
