CCC for Parents

The CCC program for Parents introduces the philosophical foundation and practical application for the curriculum taught in CCC schools. Workshops focus on how the CCC program  and methodology can be integrated at home to enhance happy, compassionate family cultures.

Discussions and content among attending new parents will cover influences of culture, personal values, parenting, child development, learning methodologies, social and emotional learning, and neuroscience research.
