One on One Parent Education and Support

Parent Education and Support

Parenting is hard—under any circumstances—and we can all use support! 

By connecting with FamilyWise's Parent Education program, Desiree began finding the tools to overcome obstacles. Using one of our laptops, she applied for a promotion online—and got it. Meanwhile, our Parent Education sessions helped her feel more secure in her choices and decisions. Now, she says, “I feel much more confident that I can parent on my own.”

FamilyWise parent education and support services include coaching and case management. 

In-home and virtual sessions include parent-child interaction coaching to:
• Strengthen parent-child relationships
• Improve parenting skills
• Decrease children’s problematic behaviors 
• Reduce risk for child abuse
• Build co-parenting skills
• Teach self-care for parents
• Offer parenting tips for teens and adolescent
