Parent education was previously embedded within the nurture assumption (Lykken 2000, 640) which maintains that parenting is not a self-sufficient and self-sustaining act but is inherently directed towards the well-being and functional behavioral development of a child. Historically, parent education is influenced by the education model that emphasizes the process of training and developing knowledge, skills, mind and character. With personal parenting knowledge recognized as what parents know and upon which they think and act in parenting, parent educators must expand their locus of parent education to include the personal parenting knowledge and experience of learners. The research team set up a group parent education program, named 'Self-learning in Parenthood' which enables participants to examine and reflect collaboratively on their parenting experience within a group-based conversation. This paper studies the experiences and learning of the participants and re-examines the role of parent educator.
