The Nurturing Parenting Program
Beginning in October of 2018, PCAA is offering the Nurturing Parenting program. This program will be six to eight week parenting classes at various venues in Athens. The Nurturing Parenting Programs are designed to empower individuals and families with new knowledge, beliefs, strategies and skills to make good and healthy lifestyle and parenting choices. These classes will offer child-care and all materials will be provided at no cost to participants.
The goals of Nurturing Parenting Programs (NPP) are to:
- Increase parents’ sense of self-worth, personal empowerment, empathy, bonding, and attachment
- Increase the use of alternative strategies to harsh and abusive disciplinary practices
- Increase parents’ knowledge of age-appropriate developmental expectations
- Reduce abuse and neglect rates
