Program Description

There is a lot of parenting advice out there, but how do you know it is good advice or even right for your family? This program connects you with a degreed, experienced Parenting Educator you can trust to give you the beneficial parenting information you want without judgement or pressure. You can learn effective strategies to parent safely and effectively in this ever-changing world all in the comfort of your own home. Most frequently, parents want to learn about child development, improving behaviors, and effective limit setting, but YOU determine the topics. Families often share that they have more peace in their home and are equipped to handle struggles that commonly arise with parenting. You can expect to feel supported by your Parenting Educator as you build confidence in new parenting strategies. The information you are given will foster positive behavior, good self-esteem, and early learning skills in your children which are also strong indicators of school success.
