Parenting Programs Mark Sanders and his colleagues at the University of Queensland have applied the principles of Positive Parenting to the special needs of working parents and designed and evaluated an eight-hour program, titled Workplace Triple P, to reduce parental stress at key times like leaving and returning home and to increase parents skills in managing these transitions. The program, carried out with volunteers in small groups, focused on two areas: coping skills, like deep breathing, muscle relaxation, challenging negative thoughts for managing parents stress; and parent-skill training to promote children’s development like engaging in activities, and skills to manage children’s behavior problems. Ways to Improve Working Parents Lives At the end of the training, parents reported lower levels of personal stress, greater feelings of self-efficacy and greater satisfactions at work, and greater effectiveness with children. These gains were maintained over a twelve-month period so the training produced lasting benefits for parents at work and at home. Parental Leave for Care of Family Members and Self As we noted earlier, a combination of the FMLA and the California PFLI, financed by an employee-paid payroll tax, would enable all parents to take paid leave for six weeks at the birth or adoption of a child and to take time off to care for a sick family member.
