ICDP trainer Bishwa Pun, coordinates ICDP at Save the Children Nepal.
She shared the following news:
Parenting comes with its fair share of joys and challenges. Navigating parenting during COVID-19 has become even more challenging as parents and children spend an unprecedented amount of time together at home. Most of us have experienced this for ourselves. (Link to #BecomingAParent )
Save the Children has been collaborating with Stories of Nepal https://www.facebook.com/TheStoriesOfNepal in order to bring stories of the parents who have adopted gentler and affirmative parenting techniques inspired by the International Child Development Programme (ICDP).
These stories talk about parents taking care of children with love, enriching interactions, and providing a positive limit for supporting children’s physical, emotional, social, and intellectual development. Our Child Sensitive Social Protection Programme provides technical support to local governments to run parenting programmes for parents and caregivers of the Child Grant beneficiaries. The Child Grant is the Nepal government’s cash transfer programme aiming to reduce malnutrition of children aged below 5 years.
For the next few weeks, we hope that you will be able to read and engage with stories of parents who are supported through our Child Sensitive Social Protection programme.
Stories will be shared on our Facebook page however they will first appear on the Stories of Nepal Page: https://www.facebook.com/savethechildren.np
