PRIDE Parenting Skills

This PEP talk is centered around learning parenting skills to help improve your relationship with your child. PRIDE skills (P-Praise, R-Reflect, I-Imitate, D-Describe, E-Enjoy) are helpful in teaching children which behaviors are desired through the use of selective attention.
