Promoting Relationships

Promoting parent child relationships in Tajikistan
Promoting parent child relationships in Tajikistan

IRODA has been privileged to be involved in the beginnings of ‘Mellow Parenting’ Programmes in Tajikistan. One of the very important aspects of IRODA’s work is providing support to parents who are raising children with autism in Tajikistan.   The Mellow Parenting programmes have been a wonderful way help parents as they develop a strong and positive relationship with their child. For 14 weeks parents meet together as a group on a weekly basis to share their own experiences of parenting, and develop new skills or ways of relating to their child. Reflections on videos of parents interacting with their children are used in the sessions, and there are times in which parents engage in fun activities with their children as a group.

It has been particularly encouraging to see mothers of children with autism now trained to facilitate mellow parenting groups. IRODA is committed to parents of children with autism in Tajikistan being well supported in everyway possible and has been pleased to see the support that these groups provide. The Mellow Parenting programmes have been a wonderful way to promote the development of relationships between parents and children in Tajikistan.

Parents involved in the programmes have said that:

“I felt that my child didn’t love me as he didn’t want to play with me. Now I can see some changes in our relationship.”

“When my child was diagnosed I had a hard time with stress and endless depression. After starting the group I understand how it’s important to have my own time and pay attention to myself. I’m starting to smile and feel a taste of life again”

Thank you for partnering with us as we continue to seek to bring about positive changes for families in Tajikistan.
