Parents and guardians are a child’s first teachers. Indeed, they are the most influential person in the development of a young child. As parents, you know that your child dreams from an early age about what they might be when they grow up – from astronaut to veterinarian to Batman or Wonder Woman. Through play, young children envision themselves in possible jobs for the future, learn to problem solve, and adjust to change.

New CERIC-funded research from Memorial University, shows the significant role of parents in nurturing these early seeds of career development in children, aged 3 to 8. This webinar will empower parents to support young children during this critical period of play, fun and fantasy. You will gain practical advice and actions you can take to help your children develop positive beliefs about themselves, and enable them to imagine and achieve their aspirations.

Parents/guardians will learn how to:

  • Enhance children’s confidence by encouraging them to try new things and be open to change
  • Encourage children to develop and recognize strengths, interests and abilities, and think positively about themselves
  • Provide children with opportunities for imaginative play
  • Help children set and accomplish appropriate goals
  • Monitor the games, books and media in which children engage
  • Discuss work with children, including place of work, job tasks and responsibilities
