Why Parent Education?

Early parent-child interactions shape a child's future. Providing parents with information and support helps them navigate through the challenges of parenting and enhances the quality of the parent-child relationship. Parent education expands the scope of primary care and promotes the healthy emotional growth and development of children.

Lynn Stoller, LMSW
