Parenting Wisely is offered in a group based program with an interactive online learning component. Parenting Wisely is designed for families with children from ages 7 to 18 years, specifically to those in the former City of York and the West end of Toronto.
The goal of Parenting Wisely is to strengthen families and enhance the development and well-being of children. The long-term goal of Parenting Wisely is to promote healthy child development. Topics addressed include: child development, parent-child interactions and bonding, parenting techniques, conflict, problem-solving, and communication. When resources permit, children’s skill building groups run in conjunction with the parenting program.
Awareness and communications initiatives for Parenting Wisely are partially funded through proceeds earned through Yorktown’s memberships with Dolphin Gaming and the Ontario Charitable Gaming Association.
