As parents, the question, “Why do they do that?” has passed through our minds time and time again. From the terrible twos to the turbulent teens, parents are often faced with behavioral issues that make us question our parenting skills and sometimes our sanity.

Our parenting workshops are designed to empower, enlighten, and encourage parents, grandparents, providers, basically anyone that has children from prenatal through to 17 years old.

Parents, grandparents, guardians or anyone caring for children, 0-17 are invited to join us for a free eight-week parenting education workshop*. Based on the Nurturing Parenting Program, this evidence-based model teaches behavioral management tips, creates more confident family leaders and helps caregivers recognize the power they posses in their own family’s development. Our participants will be encouraged, supported and assisted through this journey of recognizing the power that comes from learning effective parenting skills and the impact they will have on children as they grow.

Through the parenting education program, families will be strengthened, and parents/guardians/caregivers will have the ability to be the kind of role model their children deserve.
