"It's good that parent education is organized because we think we know everything about the upbringing of our children, and when we get new information, there is an opportunity to look at ourselves from the outside and understand that we make a lot of mistakes in relationships. How important it is to know this when you are a young parent, when your children are young, to raise them as best as possible and not to hurt them, to prevent many mistakes. I come here to learn how to behave with my children so as not to hurt them. After training, for a long time, I can communicate more calmly and productively with my children. It is easier for me to understand them. I have learned to leave all these endless homework and go to seminars for parents because it is more important and I can offer my children more.”

"There are 7 people in Zaitsev family: a father and six children. The mother left them and does not participate in the life and upbringing of children. Children were often dirty, in rags and hungry. Kids were often seen in the village cemetery, asking for food.
This family was included in the Petrushka project, and the children had the opportunity to receive a complex of services in the center at weekends and on public holidays: first they were treated for pediculosis, and laundry and bed linen were washed once a week. Financial assistance was provided to the family for purchasing 2 tier beds. The center's teachers worked intensively and worked with the children on their adaptation and socialization in society and achieved very good results. Children are very talented and actively participate in the drama club and have improved their school performance.
Social worker from Tiraspol, Petrushka Center
"When we started SOLE sessions, we used to fight as a group, where and with whom to sit, who to hold a pen and who to give information. When answering Larger questions, we also had to work hard to manage time. A social worker began to teach us how to be more patient, how to negotiate and communicate better with each other. It took us a while to find a way to collaborate in our groups. As time passed, we got along better and better, and we became friends. Now we have much more respect and listen to each other. Working together, we can now learn a lot in SOLE sessions, but more importantly, we have acquired the cooperation skills necessary for our future.
