Throughout this course you will develop a Children, Families, and Communities Guidebook that demonstrates your knowledge, learning, and personal philosophy developed during this course. In Weeks 1 through 5, you will add a new section to this guidebook, with a specific focus on partnerships with children, families, and communities. In Week 6, you will present your cumulative guidebook, as the Summative Assignment, by developing an audio, video, or multimedia presentation to show your work.

This week you will begin developing your Children, Families, and Communities Guidebook. More specifically, you will be completing the Parenting Roles section. This week’s readings include the American College of Pediatricians (2013) position statement on the rights, roles, and responsibilities of parents. This resource presents seven distinct roles that families play in modern day parenting. The family’s role often has a direct impact on the developing child, as well as those to who educate them. It is important that early childhood professionals are knowledgeable of various parenting styles so that they can best support children’s development, along with supporting parental growth and learning.
Guidebook Setup: You may choose one of the tools below to create your Children, Families, and Communities Guidebook, utilizing either a text-based guidebook or electronic guidebook.
Select one tool that you will use and add to each week to create your guidebook:
Guidebook Title Page: Your Guidebook title page will help create a professional and knowledgeable image of who you are as an expert in family and community partnerships. Please include your name, title of your guidebook, and at least one relevant visual.
Guidebook Parenting Roles Section: For this section, you are going to create a Parenting Roles newsletter that you can share with the families in your care. Create a one to two page newsletter that summarizes the seven roles that a parent or guardian plays in a child’s life at school and at home. Explain the potential positive and negative implications of the parental role. Finally, recommend one helpful resource that supports collaborative family relationships between the early childhood professional, parents or guardians, and the child.
