Is this group for me?  Yes, if you have a child under 12 years of age and have been told by the Children’s Aid Society to take a parenting course.

Description

Parenting with Love is a free-eight week parenting program for families working with the Children’s Aid Society. The program provides:

  • free child minding
  • free transportation
  • light refreshments

Parenting with Love is appropriate for all families, including prenatal families and parents with limited or no access to their children. The program emphasizes the importance of parent self-care as the primary means to building a positive and responsive parent-child relationship. The parental self-care approach is used to teach calming techniques and problem solving using the acronyms STOP and LOVE.
