Learning tools for positive parenting, whether you're a biological parent, foster parent, adoptive parent or parent through kinship, can help families stay strong.
Nurturing Parenting Program
Participating families learn about developmental milestones, discipline techniques, the importance of bonding and attachment, and many other valuable parenting skills. Classes also emphasize the value of peer support and encourage parents to remain in contact with each other after the class is concluded. FFRC teaches the 40-hour curriculum over 16 weeks in both English and Spanish, and currently runs at least two different classes each week. Food and childcare, as well as materials, are all provided to participants at no charge. Over 40 families participate in the program each year.
