School for Parents

Mandoulides Schools, in order to empower parents in their difficult and demanding role not only of raising their children but also of preparing tomorrow’s citizens, invite parents and guardians to attend the Parent Seminars.

As part of the program, special experts and associates of the Schools discuss with parents issues relating to the development of children and adolescents, including the effective management of inappropriate behavior; relationships and communication within the family; sensitive issues such as self-esteem and contending with difficult behaviors; as well as anxiety, socialization, and empowerment of children and adolescents by teaching them values that will contribute to their smooth integration into society and the digital era.

Schools for Parents aim:

  • To support parents and to strengthen the institution of the family, which is a unique place of stability and safety
  • To protect and promote children’s mental health and positive development by informing parents about important issues
  • To create an environment for the exchange of experiences and knowledge about parenting

  • To improve parent – child communication
  • To improve children’s interaction with family and school
  • To better prepare adolescents and younger children for society and the digital age
