Cambodia: Transformation in Parenting

THIS BLOG POST ORIGINALLY APPEARED ON FHCAMBODIA.BLOGSPOT.CA. WRITTEN BY UM PHOR.

Parents need to feed their kids more than food; 
55 parents participated this February in training to help the next generation. 
For families stuck in poverty, it's hard to focus on anything but surviving. Young people being raised in poverty suffer because of this, and often resort to unhealthy habits and activities to cope. Assistant Director of Communications for FH Cambodia, Um Phor, says that youth in the area tend to participate in destructive behaviours such as drinking, drug use, gambling and gang activities.

As the primary caregivers, parents hold the most influence to affect change, FH gets this. In two communities in Cambodia, FH facilitated training for parents to help them raise up the following generation, and stop the cycle of poverty. This training focused on establishing areas for development for kids as well as defining and clarifying the role of parents in helping kids lead healthy lives.

"Before, I thought that is was enough for me to provide my kids with food, and send them to school." Mrs. Phea Den explains, "Now, more than these, I know that parenting involves a lot of passion, dedication, patience, hard work and skill too."

48 women and 7 men stepped up and took part in these training sessions. In addition to the lessons, individuals shared their experiences with one another. Together, they can help bring change in the community and raise up healthy and productive kids.
