Our annual Parenting Journey class is beginning once again! Parenting Journey is a 12-week program that meets once a week for two hours in the evening. The program offers an opportunity for parents to develop themselves as nurtured and nurturing people. Parenting Journey emphasizes the parent as a person, rather than focusing exclusively on the child or viewing the child as only in a disciplinary relationship with the parent.
Graduates of the Parenting Journey class will have more confidence in achieving their own personal goals, they’ll increase their understanding about what it means to be a good parent, and they’ll be able to find and utilize community services and support more easily. Our graduates have also reported that they feel more hopeful and optimistic about their future after completing the class.
The Parenting Journey is open to all parents, foster parents and guardians of children who are 0 to six years old. Dinner, child care and transportation (if needed) are all provided for free, to make it as convenient as possible for parents to attend.
También ofrecemos la clase de Parenting Journey en Español para aquellos que lo necesiten. Para más información, vea nuestro folleto de promoción.
