Extend a Hand. Change a Life.

Parenting Education

The goal of the parenting programs at Catholic Charities is to strengthen the relationship between parents and children. We recognize that parenting is a difficult job, that children can be challenging and demanding, and sometimes their behavior is hard for parents to understand or change.

We help parents to develop appropriate expectations of their children by teaching them how children grow and learn. We teach communication skills that prevent problems from developing, and healthy alternatives to yelling and spanking that encourage children to cooperate. We support parents in developing healthy, nurturing relationships through spending constructive quality time with their children.
