The “ParentChat" programme responds to the need to support parents in coping with children in stressful situations. Milos was one of the parents who participated in “ParentChat”, launched in Montenegro this year. Although mothers are participating in such programmes in higher numbers, Milos, aware of the importance of the father's role in the child's upbringing, decided to apply.
Thanks to conversations and exchanging experiences with the other parents, Milos has mastered new strategies to help him build a positive relationship with his four-year-old son.
The “ParentChat” programme is designed for the parents of children aged 2-17 who, by participating in this programme, want to improve the socio-emotional development of their children and learn how positive parenting techniques could help improve relationships and prevent mental health problems in the family.
Participants from all over Montenegro attended group meetings and individual consultations online. The workshop in which Milos participated was facilitated by a psychologist from Nikšić, Radovan Cicmil.
