Parent Place Success Stories
“The Parent Place has been a tremendous resource. It has been a place where I’ve been able to hear others’ experiences and gain knowledge. My son and I have always felt welcome. It is a safe environment where problems can be discussed openly and real solutions accomplished. What a wonderful program.”
“I think it is so cool that the Parent Place respects us as dads enough to have our own time and activity. Most other groups are mostly women and that can feel awkward if you are the only man. Here, we are able to relax, meet other dads, and focus on our kids. The staff has helped to answer so many questions for me.”
—Dad of two
I had lost hope about my parenting….but during the Love and Logic session a light bulb went off and I have new hope again.
—Mother of three children
