Parenting Wisely (English & Spanish)
Parenting Wisely is offered in both English and Spanish in an interactive CD-ROM and DVD-based parenting program designed for families at-risk with children from ages 3 to 18 years, specifically to those in the area of Junior Schools & Middle Schools in the former City of York.
The Parenting Wisely program is one of a range of programs offered that are linguistically and culturally modified to meet the diverse needs of families. The goal is to strengthen families and enhance the development and well-being of children living in difficult situations. 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.
