Module 1

As you learned in this module families may face challenges that can affect how they engage in their childrens education and care. Early childhood educators should help families work through these challenges and engage in their childrens early education.

Choose a challenge from this list in the lesson content folder online lecture The Challenges of Involving Families in Childrens Education. This is the topic I chose to write about: Lack of knowledge or skills:

For Families: Families may feel they lack the knowledge or skills to successfully support their childrens learning.
For Educators: Educators may lack the knowledge and skills to effectively plan family engagement activities.

Create an example to describe how a family may experience that challenge.
Describe at least two strategies you would use to encourage the family to be engaged in their childs early childhood program.
