Parenting Made simple

Our mission is to prevent child abuse and negelct through community based education programs, workshops, and in-home services for families.

Improve Parenting Skills Through Learning!
Parenting skills are learned. The way that children are raised is directly influenced by the way their parents were raised. Given a choice, all families would choose to have healthy, happy interactions. To bring improvement to the family, all members must be involved in learning new skills.

The purpose of our Evidence Based Nurturing Program - written by Stephen Bavolek - is to increase parenting and nurturing skills of parents with their children and increase positive interactions within the family. The classes we offer are designed to be interesting, enjoyable, helpful, and informative. Parenting Educators are friendly and professional. Flexible scheduling hours help us meet the needs of our clients. We offer a variety of parenting services to families in Mercer County and throughout Pennsylvania. 

Remember that people who feel good about themselves have more potential to be nurturing to others.
