NICWA’s: Positive Indian Parenting Online Course includes curriculum designed to provide a brief, practical, and culturally specific training program for Indian parents. The curriculum has two goals, 1) to help Indian parents explore the values and attitudes expressed in traditional Indian child-rearing practices and then to apply those values to modern parenting skills; and 2) to help parents develop positive and satisfying attitudes, values, and skills that have roots in their cultural heritage.
