Parent Education Network

Group Name: Parent Education Network

Description: Parent Education Network (P.E.N.) is proud of our history of providing quality parenting workshops and courses for parents and caregivers in the community since 1974. They are a non-profit, charitable community service agency, offering essential programs to support the most important role of all – parenting. All of their instructors are also parents, so they’ve all been there.

Through our workshops and classes, you will learn how to use kind and firm methods to raise a child who is responsible, respectful and resourceful. You’ll learn practical approaches to parenting challenges that strengthen family relationships. Our goals are to help parents:

  • Improve verbal and non-verbal communication in the home
  • Prevent and resolve family conflict, in a manner that preserves the dignity and worth of all family members
  • Help children develop the skills of self-management and maturity, through cooperation, responsibility, independence, and courage
  • Build a positive, strong, and resilient self-image in our children and ourselves
