PARENT-CHILD EDUCATION

Learning that benefits both parents and children

Youth Contact’s parenting education programs focus on encouraging, developing, and enhancing the strengths of parents so they are able to create more successful family environments. We place great importance on family member interaction and empower parents to apply increased expertise. We look at ways to enhance family resiliency and do not blame parents for their child’s “problem” behavior. We offer families hope that change is possible.

Most of our programs have the capacity to serve clients in Spanish.

Due to Covid-19, the Nurturing Hope and the ABCs of Parenting are now being offered in an online community setting using Zoom. Fall classes begin September 28, 2020.
