Traditional Family Parenting

Our Clearwater Coalition collaborates with the community to create healthy children. Through our coalition meetings many relationships have been created between community groups in Clearwater County. These connections have allowed us to share our knowledge and collaborate to promote early development of children in our area. One excellent example of this, is the Traditional Family Parenting Workshop that we organized in collaboration with the Rocky Native Friendship Centre, allowing parents and teachers to learn traditional indigenous beliefs on the circle of life and how a child is raised. Through interagency connections, the coalition was also able to visit the O’Chiese, Sunchild, and Big Horn First Nations to share our resources. When creating the “I love it when…” colouring books indigenous leaders shared their resources as well, through a picture of traditional native dancing, to include in our books. The social and emotional development of children is promoted by understanding all cultures in Clearwater county.
