Nurturing Parenting Programs are a family-centered initiative designed to build nurturing parenting skills and positive child-rearing practices. The nurturing philosophy of non-violent parenting focuses on the development of empathy, self-worth, self-awareness, empowerment, discipline with dignity, appropriate roles and age-appropriate expectations of children’s development.

These programs have been adapted for special populations dealing with particular issues such as special learning needs, substance abuse, the military and many more. The Family Resource Center currently offers two Nurturing Parenting Classes:
