There is no official training manual for performing the world’s most important job – raising children. Every
Often, parents find it beneficial to take part in a parenting
education and support program as children grow and develop through
various stages of life. The overall goal of parental counseling is to
support parental involvement and communication with children. Parents
learn how to use positive reinforcement to set boundaries and minimize
negative behaviors while fostering a nurturing environment. Parental
support is often needed in the first year of a baby’s life, during the
toddler years, during the preschool years and during the teen years.
Additional support may be necessary when other life events occur, such
as a divorce or the addition of one or more siblings to the family unit.
By facilitating a healthy relationship with their children, parents
are investing in the long-term emotional, physical and mental well-being
of their children. All parents need support from time to time, and our
parenting education and support program encourages parents to take
advantage of the resources available to them. Children flourish in the
framework of love, safety and encouragement. We help give parents the
tools to establish the basis for thriving child-parent relationships.
