Family Support Services
Methodist’s Family Support Services teaches parents to understand and use positive parenting techniques. Using Nurturing Parenting and IFP curricula and tools, in addition to interactive group settings, parent, grandparent, guardian and family caregivers work diligently to learn effective problem solving, the stages of childhood development, and the capabilities and vulnerabilities of the brain. Parents are encouraged to build healthy relationships with their children, develop strategies for spending quality one-on-one time and create opportunities to grow as a family. Caregivers are given information regarding children’s educational resources available in the regional school system.
