We know parenting isn’t easy. We are here to assist families in nurturing and guiding their children. We provide intense parenting education sessions for families overwhelmed and struggling with the parenting role, or those who are experiencing the early stages of child maltreatment and need intervention and treatment.
To qualify, parents and caregivers need to live in Union County and have a 0-5 aged child that is not yet in kindergarten.
Program is 13 sessions, meets weekly, and utilizes the Nurturing Parenting Program for Parents and Their Infants, Toddlers, and Preschoolers.
Translation services are available.
Parenting Support, an Alliance for Children program, helps parents gain a better understanding of their infants, toddlers, and preschoolers as they grow, while teaching them self-worth and empowerment. This program will help participating parents discover the importance of nurturing and how it affects others, as well as themselves. Through self-awareness and skill-building activities, parents will: increase empathy, develop realistic expectations of children, appropriate family roles, and learn positive discipline practices.
We meet weekly in individual sessions, in person or virtual, or through a small group (when scheduled). Sessions can last 1-1.5 hours individually, and 2-2.5 hours for group. There are 13 sessions within the program, and they build on each other.
Please note the following:
“I want to say thank you for helping me learn new ways to control my behaviors and to discipline my kids with much more of a control not out of anger.” Sarah, mom of 3
“Between me and my children we have a greater bond, it was not easy doing everything by the book but it was sure worth it. Each session went by I started to enjoy the class more and more. I can automatically see the difference in all of us. We became closer and started communicating on a level I never knew existed.” Victoria, mom of 4
"I just wanted to thank you so much for everything you have been doing for us for teaching and helping us become better parents and change our family with so much positive through this hard time we had.” John and Lisa, parents of 3
