Parent Education

HOW WE HELP

Childhaven’s Parent Education classes are provided to parents and caregivers of children age 0 to 17 years. Enrolled families have access to services provided by our parent educators, including linkage to other community resources, individualized service plans, and more. Both parents and their children participate in lessons in either an in-home setting, a group-based setting, or a combination of both. Classes focus on building nurturing parenting skills as an alternative to punitive child-rearing practices and cover a range of topics as they related to nurturing parenting, including but not limited to:

  • Cultural Differences
  • Spirituality
  • Impact of drug/alcohol use on the family
  • Physical touch and personal space
  • Child development
  • Age-appropriate expectations of children
  • Establishing nurturing routines
  • Alternatives to spanking
  • Stress management and coping skills for parents
  • Parent and child self-regulation
  • How to respond to your child’s behavior (positive and negative)

WHEN AND WHERE?

Classes are provided at no cost to caregivers and occur every Tuesday evening at the San Juan United Way Building in Farmington from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. Childcare, transportation, and dinner are also provided on the evenings of classes. Pre-enrollment is required.
