Confident Parenting

Parenting today is not always easy or simple. The early years of a child’s life are the most important for their development and parents, as their child’s first and most influential teachers, want to do the best they can for their children. Confident Parenting helps parents learn ways to support their child’s development while also providing the social and emotional tools necessary for success in school and life.

The library partners with outside groups to provide research-based strategies and practices that will help parents interact with their children throughout the day. Topics in the Confident Parenting programming include, but are not limited to:

Sibling rivalry
Infant and toddler brain development
The importance of play
Raising children to make good choices
Social & emotional development
Preventing challenging behavior
Helping children conquer fears and anxieties
