Parenting Matters

 

Parenting Matters is a home visitation program that supports families with the evidence based Nurturing Parenting curriculum.  The Parenting Matters program is designed to increase parenting knowledge and skills.  It is a tool for reducing the risks, attitudes and behaviors associated with child abuse and neglect. A pre and posttest is given to participants.  Our goal is that after completing the program, there will be significant posttest gains in positive personality characteristics, family functioning, parenting beliefs and knowledge of positive parenting strategies.  The program addresses positive discipline, communication, understanding feelings and building self-worth, praising good behavior, child development, dealing with stress and anger, developing family values and rules as well as enhancing positive brain development.  We also include a financial literacy component.  Parenting Matters is for Henry County residents that have a child age 0-5 or a pregnant woman in her 3rd trimester.  The program is available at no cost.

Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Resources

 

According to the 2009 American Community Survey, approximately 102,000 grandparents in Georgia were responsible for raising their grandchildren. Understanding the complexities of this phenomenon, Prevent Child Abuse Henry is reaching out to grandparents raising grandchildren and providing more resources. Because we value families and understand that caring for a grandchild may have its challenges.
