Organising groups conversations or focus groups with mother and fathers are powerful means to create a dialogue, connect parents and gain more insight on their perspectives. But how do you organise a focus group and what can you ask to parents? Find out in these straight forward guidelines. 

Warm, welcome and reciprocal

How to find out what parents are thinking, where their doubts and questions, concerns and thresholds lie in transitions? What they are happy about, and what raises their eyebrows or makes their hearts pounding? The answer is deceptively simple: ask them. In this chapter of a Belgian book ‘Warm, welcome and reciprocal’ , we focus on how to question parents, and to what a thousand blooming flowers this can lead to - if you do it in thoughtful approach. Examples come from Belgian preschools.
