Our Enhancing Parenting Program is a parenting education and support group that meets in cycles of 12, two hour sessions. The interactive curriculum focuses on: improving parents’ ability to identify, express, process and manage feelings; increase parents’ understanding of child development; increase parents’ understanding of the varied approaches to positive parenting including increased knowledge of nurturing and responsive parenting interactions. The groups also support parents in learning about and supporting their child’s educational needs.
Enrollment is open ended. YSI holds classes at agency locations or offers the program at area shelter. Participants include custodial and non-custodial parents, caregivers and individuals expecting their first child.
