Developmental Parenting

Dr. Lori Roggman and Marc Innocenti, authors of the PICCOLO and HOVRS, presented a workshop at the January 2014 Early Years Conference in Vancouver, B.C.  Their research, based on the model of Developmental Parenting, provides a framework for practitioners working in early intervention – it is a research based approach to home visiting that emphasizes practices necessary to build capacity.  Learn more through the links below:

 

Coaching & Mentoring

In their January 2014 workshop, Dr. Lori Roggman made a couple of statements that really stuck with us:

  • “Sit on your hands so you have to teach them to do, rather than doing it yourself
  • “Keep the parent in the teaching role.  Put them behind the wheel and don’t grab the wheel.  Don’t use modelling unless really, really necessary and only as a last resort“.

Modelling has been a mainstay of practice with families and child care programs.  What practices should be used in its place?  Take a look at the HOVRS – reflect on the extent to which you use the various practices it suggests.  Pay attention to when you use modelling – under what conditions do you do so?  Is there a pattern (e.g. certain conditions lead you to use modelling)?  Thinking about the practices in the HOVRS, what could you replace it with?
