Welcome to Positive Parenting
You have arrived at a parenting sanctuary that maybe you have been seeking for a long time. Parenting doesn’t have to be so hard or confusing. And most important, you are not alone.
PositiveParentingCT.com is a place where you can get help with parenting.
Maybe you are seeking parenting advice or just some tips on parenting. Maybe you don’t know where to begin. If you are reading this, you have already begun. Awareness of our challenges is the first step to change.
You will be able to access lists of free parenting classes, articles on parenting and a variety of other parenting resources such as parent “briefs” on specific topics, questions and answers, and a blog that will help you remember the parent you intended to be. You will be able to connect with other parents who want to start peer learning groups and hear from parents who have benefited from Positive Parenting approaches.
Thank you for your willingness to search for answers on behalf of your family. Parenting can be a mystery sometimes and our children benefit when we choose to join with others in order to find our way.
“Ruth, you were the first person we talked to who really seemed to understand our concerns. I can’t tell you what a relief it was to have you not only understand what we were talking about, but also recognize that although we were not doing everything perfectly, we were really trying our best. That alone helped relieve a lot of my stress, which in turn made me better able to parent our foster child.”
