Partner Spotlight: Parenting Success Network

December 20, 2021, Pollywog Staff

The Parenting Success Network is a network of organizations in Linn, Benton, and Lincoln Counties dedicated to strengthening and supporting families. We strive to offer a wide variety of parenting education opportunities to meet the needs of a diverse parenting population. Our programs work with many family situations, from those who seek to move from good to excellent parenting to those who struggle with the demands of parenthood. Our families come from all walks of life and share the joys and frustrations of parenthood. Other programs offer a higher degree of support for families like parent coaching and home visiting. We are also a resource for parenting educators, including offering access to curriculum materials, training opportunities, and information about best practices.

Why is Parenting Education so important?

Parenting is an important job, and the skills are learned and can be improved. Parenting education is a family experience. When all family members know and operate on the same philosophy, children will feel trust, predictability, and consistency.
