Parenting and Family Life Education

One of the ways The Parenting Center maintains its mission of providing professionals and family members with the tools, resources and services to build successful families is through its Family Life Education program. Our highly skilled and caring staff is the reason more parents turn to The Parenting Center for their questions about raising a family.

To help parents feel confident and successful in their role, we offer more than 50 relevant topics on a wide range of topics in our parenting classes.  We are here at every stage of development, birth to teen, to assist parents in nurturing and guiding their children. We know parenting isn’t easy that is why our classes are available at our office, online, as well as other locations throughout the Metroplex. Online registrations are simple and fast or call us, we’ll be glad to help.

Family Life Education classes are taught by trained, degreed, and experienced professionals. Our goal is to deliver quality, research-based instruction on effective, non-violent child-rearing practices, so that parents and caregivers can feel positive about their relationships their children.

Need more individualized assistance? We offer private classes and parent coaching. With the help of our educator, parents or caregivers can select the topic that will help them with answers to some of the difficult aspects of parenting. Private classes are by appointment.
Sometimes parents need assistance implementing the skills they have learned. Parent Coaching is designed to help refine skills so that they become tools of success. Parent Coaching is only available by appointment with a Family Life Educator.


We can bring the classes close to your families or place of work.  Our educators can present programs to clubs, churches, schools, businesses or other types of groups at a community location. To schedule a program or staff development training and find out about group class fees, please contact Esther Grabow at egrabow@theparentingcenter.org.

Bring the Incredible Years Series to your childcare or parenting group!

Incredible years is a free 12-week series offered for parents with preschool-aged children. Classes are engaging, fun, and interactive.

The Preschool Basic parenting program strengthens parent-child interactions and attachment, reducing harsh discipline and fostering parents’ ability to promote children’s social, emotional, and language development. Parents also learn how to build school readiness skills and are encouraged to partner with teachers and day care professionals so they can promote children’s emotional regulation and social skills. In the parenting groups, trained Incredible Years® facilitators use video clips of real-life situational vignettes to support the training and trigger parenting group discussions, problem solving, and practice exercises.

To learn more about this program’s benefits or to schedule a series for your group contact Madison Filar at mfilar@theparentingcenter.org
