PLN Nurturing Parenting Class Graduates

Nurturing Parenting classes at Para Los Niños are designed to equip parents with non-violent parenting tools that promote and nourish relationships, children and the environment (including animals). The Nurturing Program emphasizes on 5 constructs:

• Age appropriate expectations
• Empathy
• Discipline
• Appropriate family roles
• Empowerment

The Nurturing Parenting class at the Para Los Niños Charter Elementary School met for 12-weeks on Tuesday evenings from 4:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. During the last weeks of class, facilitators noticed growth in the parents. Parents did not sound as stressed as when they began attending class. They shared: “I have more patience with my children”, “I understand that the expectations I had for my children were not age appropriate” and “I feel that we communicate much better now.” One of the parents proudly told his wife, “I did not miss one class!”

CES parents asked if they could continue attending and are interested in continuing their participation in future classes/groups.
