Parenting Journey is a strength-based parenting program that concentrates on the emotional understanding of what it means to be a parent. The 12-week curriculum helps parents envision a positive future for themselves and their children by reflecting on their own upbringing and drawing conclusions about how to be a good parent. The Parenting Journey is more than a “how-to” class. It is an opportunity for parents to develop themselves as nurtured and nurturing people, capable of making responsible and informed choices in raising their children.
