The educational workshop “Punishment and rewarding” was held as a discussion with the parents in regards to the issues they are facing with their children and the possible educational methods they could use either to “punish” or reward their children.
On December 17 the educational workshop “Punishment and rewarding” was organized for the parents of the students of the vocational secondary school “Mosha Pijade”- Preljubishte. On this workshop the parents from the Macedonian and Albanian class were present.
