Partnering for Healthy Parents

Children’s Home Society of North Carolina (CHS) offers two separate programs for parent education within pediatric offices to support families in Guilford County. Partnering for Healthy Parenting was created as a response to recent research that shows that parents and caregivers go to their child’s healthcare provider for information about child development and behaviors. The goals of parent education include over-coming barriers and stigma parents may face when seeking out parent education, expanding the reach of parent education in a trusted setting, and family-focused interventions. Results have shown positive impact on child health and behavior (Leslie, Mehus, Hawkins, et al., 2016). Having these programs accessible to parents and families in pediatric offices helps accomplish CHS’s goal to pro-mote child well-being, reduce parental stress, and support families in our community.
