The Center for Youth and Family Solutions offers a parenting course based on the Nurturing Parenting Program, an evidence-based parenting curriculum. Our program is usually offered as a 10 week class focusing on different aspects of parenting and enhancing parents’ ability to nurture, both themselves and their children.

Parents will be empowered with new knowledge and skills on how to effectively parent their children. The program is geared to help all types of families and is grounded with five principles: Appropriate Expectations, Empathy, Non-Violent Discipline, Appropriate Family Roles, and Power and Independence.

The Adult-Adolescent Parenting Inventory (AAPI-2) is used as an evaluation tool both at the start of the course and again at the end in order to measure parent changes within these five areas.
