Parenting for a Peaceful World Parenting Programme (PFPW) is one of the flagship projects of EDiversity. Founded by a group of parents and educators, EDiversity has always advocated choices in education to respect the different needs of children, at home and at school. This programme was born to facilitate this.
PFPW began with the masterpiece Parenting for a Peaceful World written by Australian psychologist Robin Grille. In 2017, we translated it and published the Chinese version. A year after, with the support of the D. H. Chen Foundation, we implemented a three-year community parenting project. Through lectures, workshops, reading clubs, we bring about the awareness of how our childhood experiences can affect our parenting style today.
The PFPW Online Parenting Course is our latest collaboration with Robin and the Foundation, to support parents/teachers/child caregivers. The self-learning elements of the course make learning easy 24×7, while the co-learning elements make your PFPW journey much more nourishing as you learn with others in the PFPW community on and offline, giving you more capacity to respond to your children empathically, so children will learn from your role-modelling, and grow into a global citizen with empathy, and one who knows how to care for oneself, others and society.
