Question description

Parenting Presentation

Parents often wish that a parenting manual came with their child.  Your Final Project is to develop a PowerPoint presentation designed as a comprehensive summary of the course.  The presentation will demonstrate an understanding of philosophies, theories, and concepts learned and how they apply to family relationships.  In a 12- to 14-slide PowerPoint presentation (not including the title, purpose, and reference slides) you will create a presentation to share with parents.  The Final Project represents 20% of the overall course grade.

Focus of Final Project:

Create a PowerPoint Presentation for your early childhood education center to share with new parents.  The presentation must include the following:
  1. Title slide
  2. Purpose (Objective) statement slide detailing the importance of positive parenting.
  3. APA style Reference slide with at least three scholarly sources and the course text.  Format your presentation according to APA as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
In addition, include 12 to 14 slides that address the following:
  1. (Chapter One) List and explain three positive characteristics of mothering and/or fathering.  Explain how these characteristics will ultimately influence the child's success in school.
  2. (Chapter Two) Choose two common toddler actions (suggestions: temper tantrums, "me do it,” potty training) and explain effective strategies to minimize the undesirable behavior.  Explain to parents how positive expectations can lessen the need for discipline.
  3. (Chapter Three) Explain how parents can help their adolescents deal with the common issue of bullying.
  4. (Chapter Four) Explain the difference between limited caretaking and involuntary caretaking in terms of the role of grandparents.  Describe the positive effects this relationship has on the grandchild.  Explain how parents can include grandparents as influences in their child's life.

  6. (Chapter Six) Explain poverty and how it impacts both parents and children.  Describe to parents how you will support their child in the classroom.  Offer at least two outside resources to support your families.
  7. (Chapter Seven) List two negative effects of divorce and give parents examples of how they can counteract the negativity and support their children.
  8. (Chapter Eight) Choose two of the "Ten Strategies for Family, Parenting, and Work Balance" and use these two points to explain how a balanced life will enhance the lives of their children.
  9. (Chapter Nine) Choose and explain one high-risk factor and how this factor negatively affects the child.  Explain how parents can support their children.  Specifically illustrate how parents/educators can assist a child with unpredictable behavior at home or in the classroom.
  10. (Chapter Ten) Choose and explain one disability and explain specific ways for parents to support this child.  Describe to parents how you will include the child in all classroom activities and how you will educate their peers to be inclusive as well.
  11. (Chapter Eleven) Explain at least three suggestions for support for your parents of adopted children.  At least one suggestion must be a children's book and an explanation of why you chose this book.
  12. (Chapter Twelve) Explain the positive effects of a quality childcare program.  Convince these parents that your program is the ideal childcare program for their child.
  13. Conclusion slide which includes a restatement of the opening thesis statement and how you will support the children while they are members of your classroom.  Explain to parents that your classroom is tolerant, supportive, and encouraging to all families.
Students should creatively address the material including graphics, visuals, charts, graphs, and/or sound.  Slides should be designed to clearly and concisely address the material.  The PowerPoint presentation must be formatted according to APA style; include the title and reference slides and cite within slides when appropriate.  The notes section of the PowerPoint must be utilized to expand on the students' presented points.  The notes section should also include any additional information necessary to explain or show the students' point of view.  Students must use at least three scholarly sources and the course text.  The Final Project will contribute to 20% of the course grade.
