In Summer 2022, Formed Families Forward offered a 2-session Positive Parenting class in Prince William County. With grant support from the Human Services Alliance of PW, this in-person course was open to parents and caregivers of young children. Child care and lunch were provided and participants who attended both sessions received gift cards as well. A fall 2022 offering of Positive Parenting in English will be open soon. Spanish offerings will be available in 2023.
Positive Parenting class participant Julianne commented: “The small setting where we got the opportunity to introduce ourselves helped me feel more comfortable. I liked that we were encouraged to use real-life examples when filling in the workbook and when discussing how to apply the parenting strategies.”
In addition: Formed Families Forward started offering Parenting Wisely classes in Winter 2019. Thanks to the Fairfax County Partners in Prevention Fund for supporting our delivery of this great course for parents and caregivers of teens. Find more about the Parenting Wisely curriculum HERE. We deliver the program through 5 sessions of face-to-face or virtual classes led by trained facilitators.
