The Parents Association in Taipei produces the "Partners in Education" program, which is an educational growth radio program for parents, hoping to provide parents with life-oriented educational information to serve them and enhance their ability to accompany their children in learning and growth, and to guide them to become good partners in education with the school.
The different modules are designed to meet the needs of weekend relaxation, and although they are policy-driven, they have more diversified contents to make parents easily absorb and understand, and achieve the purpose of two-way policy communication.
With affinity and care as the keynote, the program content is produced and tailored to the educational needs of parents, and each module is planned to invite guests to explain profound theories in simple language for theme exploration. The program will provide parents with new concepts that are in line with the trend and at the cutting edge. The latter part of the program is divided into different modules, not only to grasp the current situation and provide parents with real-time educational information but also to achieve the purpose of educational entertainment.
1."Weekend Brunch News" Appetizer Module to help parents master real-time information
We invite front-line educators, parent associations, educational and cultural charitable organizations to connect and report views of parent groups across the country, observe news incidents, local education events, and parents-children activities, to form a national platform for parent information exchange. This year, we will focus more deeply on the environment-friendly issues: in the face of an exploding population and an increasingly polluted environment, the Earth's resources have been severely depleted and climate warming is on the rise. While many scientists are working to halt the rise in Planet Earth’s average temperature, young heroes are coming to the forefront, Dutch teenagers and Swedish young girls are making admirable contributions by removing marine litter and calling on political leaders to take the issue of warming seriously. Let us inspire parents and children to care about the planet by providing them with more ideas and practical practices from educational and civic groups on environmental issues such as plastic reduction. Perhaps the next important solution to environmental protection will come from the youth of Taiwan.
2.“Parents Play Big” Main Course Module:
In recent years, the birth rate in Taiwan has been declining year on year, and the new generation of parents is gradually adopting a different approach to parenting education and parent-child relationships. Through this module, we hope that the new generation of parents will have a broader perspective on parenting, parenting education, aesthetic cultivation, outdoor learning, parental growth, family health, parent-child co-learning and creative interaction. And that they will be able to cultivate their children's aesthetic and creative abilities and increase parent-child interaction so that they can experience a more diverse and energetic life together.

When parents encounter an obstinate disobedient, they cannot help but blood boils while their decibel becomes higher and higher, a common experience for almost every family. Although it is said that every family, all, has a cross to bear, children will have situations that emerge in an endless way and parents would love to face problems with kind and pleasant countenance to solve them, so that Education does not need to shout at. This module will actively explore the parenting challenges that modern parents are experiencing through letters from listeners on the "Educating Partners" fan page, members of the Parents Association in Taipei and volunteers from the "Love You Forever Guard Team".

4.“New Parents, Please Listen” Main Course Module:
Nowadays low birth rate and the unwillingness of people to have more children, bringing up each child well and keeping them healthy and strong has added to the sweet burden of new parents.
However, no one is born a parent, and the parenting knowledge of the previous generation has been scientifically validated over the past 20 to 30 years, and new perspectives and recommendations are likely to have emerged. With the rapid advancement of technology, children's health is more susceptible to the effects and dangers of many new things.
