Parenting Development through American Schools

Parenting, as well as teaching, is a considerable challenge in today's society and our schools have a unique opportunity to support parents in the development of the life skills needed for raising their children. Programs and resources can be developed and implemented through American schools to assist parents. By working together, educators and parents can make the learning experience a fruitful one for our children.
