Families today face challenges and struggles that often seem insurmountable. The stress, challenges and difficulty of working with a child who is increasingly more and more out of control is one of the most painful experiences a parent can face. Parents frequently blame themselves for the problems their children are facing.
We ensure and endeavor in our best to work with parent and student on challenges parent might be faced with in communicating with their children.
We also provide a session with parent during the camp to get involved in the area they find difficult to relate with their children so we can help and assist such child to be a better person in their challenged areas.
Our aim is that students that enroll into our camp will be so impacted they’d return home better persons all-round.
We also follow up with the children after the camp to get feedback from the parent to ascertain if the lessons learned are being practiced and suggest possible ways to reinforce such lessons.
