Pregnancy is the launching point to a special journey that should be positively approached. It’s common that future mothers get discouraged from the physical demands of pregnancy and all the natural body changes that occur. It’s important to keep in mind that exercising during pregnancy not only has physical benefits, but also provides a peace of mind that can even propel a child’s success throughout its life.
My birthday was this past weekend, I love birthdays! I don’t only love mine, I love to celebrate everyone.
It is a gift to be alive and have a birthday, it is a gift to be loved and to give love and what better day than our birthday to share that.
Our Parenting program focuses on strengthening the caregiver/child relationship and allows opportunity for participants to examine their family values systems and family roles. Families qualifying for our parenting service participate in interactive sessions in which they learn appropriate and clear communication, anger management, and conflict resolution skills. Additionally, caregivers will be provided with referral support in connecting to appropriate community resources for job skill training, housing, social services, nutrition, healthcare services, etc. Caregivers participating in services will learn how to effectively acknowledge and provide support for their child’s feelings. Similarly, caregivers will learn to identify their child’s behavioral patterns and will learn to implement age and developmentally appropriate parenting interventions.
