Our Nurturing Parenting classes and workshops are designed to empower parents through self awareness, while learning important information about child development, and establishing skills to strengthen parenting. The lessons teach positive parenting skills through class time and home practice exercises.

Nurturing skills can strengthen your family, build your confidence and enhance parent-child relationships. Our parenting classes and workshops teach positive parenting skills and feature home practice exercises, family nurturing time, and activities to promote positive brain development in children. Topics include: growth and development, discipline, culture and parenting traditions and nurturing routines. These classes are ideal for parents of children prenatal to 12 years of age.

In the Strengthening Families Program, youth ages 7-17 participate with their parents in an interactive class setting. The Strengthening Families Program (SFP) is a family skills training program that can significantly improve parenting skills and family relationships. SFP has had positive results in reducing substance abuse and delinquency risk factors by improving family relationships.
