Our Nurturing Parenting Program is a family-centered initiative designed to build nurturing parenting skills as an alternative to abusive and neglectful parenting and child-rearing practices.
The long term goals are to prevent recidivism in families receiving social services, lower the rate of multi-parent teenage pregnancies, reduce the rate of juvenile delinquency and alcohol abuse, and stop the intergenerational cycle of child abuse by teaching positive parenting behaviors. It is built on the principles of relational development, which emphasizes the impact of the parent-child relationship on the individual and on each other. Therefore, curriculum activities are designed to help participants learn how to nurture themselves as individuals and in turn build their nurturing family.
