Consider this observation from one of our clients
"As a child, I was raised in a physically, emotionally, verbally and even sexually abusive home. If there is anything I knew, was that I planned on breaking the cycle! And that I did. As a new parent though, I knew what NOT to do, but I didn’t always know what TO do.
I found myself struggling with finding the balance of setting boundaries and consequences, without being neither abusive nor lenient. Parenthesis equipped me with so many tools for the many stages of development. Simple strategies, like distraction, speaking at eye level, consistency, validating emotions, were foreign to me. Having a social worker visit my home and support my children’s development and support my parenting as well as my emotional well being, was in fact a LIFE SAVER!"
The work of parenting education helps to break damaging family cycles
Parenthesis Family Center will be expanding it's services as we reach across Austin Blvd. to merge with New Moms Inc. More information will be coming your way as the merger becomes final. Your support will continue this important work in our community.
