SUPPORT SERVICES AND ADVICE FOR PARENTS
“My Parent Educator showed me different ways to influence children positively. She reminded me and sent me down the right path to be the best for the children. She provided ideas to change their negative behaviors to help them grow up to be a positive model in the world. The children’s behavior has changed a lot for the better because of my Parent Educator’s help and understanding.” – Past Participant
