With your help, over 2,600 children will benefit from having moms and dads who will nurture them, encourage them and empower them to make good choices this year. In Davidson County, close to 70% of the parents The Family Center served who had initially tested high risk for child abuse, saw dramatic improvement and described as medium or low risk after taking Positive Parenting classes at The Family Center. Sixty-eight percent improved their attitude on empathy, which means they better recognize their children’s feelings, as well as the importance of communicating with their children.
