Parenting Programs and Trainings
Our professional team recognizes that there is no one right way to parent and that not all techniques work for all parents. There are, however, more effective ways to parent, and our goal is to provide parents with a range of tools and strategies that they can have at their disposal. Our overall objective is to teach parents how to take control of their parenting by helping them to:
- Quickly acquire relevant information on child health and development
- Learn new and proven parenting strategies
- Develop their problem-solving skills and abilities and boost their self-confidence
- Reduce their sense of isolation and form supportive networks with other parents
