KINGSTON, Jamaica – Minister of Youth and Culture, Lisa Hanna, urging parents to take better care of their children, says that the Child Development Agency’s (CDA) is conducting parenting workshops to assist in the reintegration of children in State care.

“Many of our parents weren’t taught to be parents, and so the CDA is now having parenting workshops. We completed some 121 last year, which impacted nearly 2000 parents, and will continue on this drive, going forward,” Hanna said.

The minister was speaking Sunday at the CDA’s 10th Anniversary Church Service held at the Church of the Open Bible, Washington Boulevard in Kingston.

The service was held to officially herald the start of the Agency’s commemorative year (June 2014 to May 2015), under the theme, ‘Protecting Children, Transforming Lives, Securing the Future’.

Hanna emphasised that children belonged with their families and added that she would continue to champion the cause of better parenting, to reintegrate children in State care.
