There are no perfect parents, perfect children, or perfect people
We can only do our best, and we all need help once in a while. The Nobody’s Perfect parenting program assists parents who are young, single, isolated (socially or geographically), low-income or have limited formal education.
Nobody’s Perfect is a place where parents can:
- Meet with other parents of young children (ages 0–5)
- Share questions or concerns and ideas about being a parent
- Learn about child development, safety, health and behaviour
- Talk about real-life parenting experiences
- Work together with the support of a trained facilitator
- Discover ways of positive parenting
Within a group setting, parents participate in facilitated sessions that:
- Promote positive parenting
- Increase parents' understanding of children's health, safety, and behaviour
- Help parents build on the skills they have and learn new ones
- Improve parents' self-esteem and coping skills
- Increase self-help and mutual support
- Connect them with community services and resources
- Help prevent family violence
