The goal of parent education is to develop safe, stable, and nurturing parent-child relationships. Parent education aims to develop these positive-child relationships.

Making an impact

There is no greater influence in the life of a child than that of a parent. Parents serve as a child’s first teacher, providing guidance and reassurance, and serving as the first role model in a child’s life. But life can get complicated and sometimes we need a little help. Taking part in an evidence-based parent education program can: 

  • Lower your stress
  • Help your child be ready to start school
  • Reduce anxiety
  • Improve parent-child relationships
  • Result in happier, healthier children
Who should participate?

Every parent! Children are not born with an instruction manual so many of us rely on personal experiences, observations and advice from others. These parent education programs want to equip you with knowledge, tools and tips on things you can do every day to improve the well-being of your child. These programs are for moms, dads, step-parents, grandparents- anyone who would like to feel better and more confident about raising the children they love.

What is an evidence-based program?
Evidence-based programs are supported by scientific research that ensures positive and effective results. Leading organizations such as the California Evidence-Based Clearinghouse for Child Welfare (CBEC) and the National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices (NREPP) evaluate these programs to make sure that they are useful and that they work. These programs are carefully researched and tested and have proven to be effective.
Why use an evidence-based parenting program?
We all want what’s best for the children we love. These programs are research-based and proven to help you develop safe, stable and loving relationships with your children.
