Parenting & Family Groups

Positive Parenting… Plus!

Being a parent isn’t always easy… how we parent our children impacts their health, ability in school, and future success in life. Most parents regardless of race, culture, or financial situations are affected by daily demands, time limitations, and stress in general. We can easily become overwhelmed.

Positive Parenting… Plus! uses proven curriculum and methods to offer information, emotional support, skill building, and personal insights,  helping moms, dads, or other family caregivers be the best parents possible!

In our community-based partner sites, parents are encouraged to bring their children (up to age 13) who can share in the “family meal” and participate in their own group focused on similar topics.  This is where the “plus” comes in!
