Parenting Wisely

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.
