Parents had a positive response to the parenting education classes. The grants provided opportunities to form unique collaborations with other agencies in their communities. In addition, they report there now is opportunity to build on the work that has been started through the mini-grants.

The five awardees provided parent education to 97 parents. Parents involved in the Parenting Classes reported they had:

· New parenting skills,

· An increased sense of confidence in their parenting skills and ability to handle situations with their children,

· An increased sense of connection with other parents and that it was helpful and validating to be with parents experiencing the same challenges;

“I have gained a better knowledge of how to be a better parent to all of my children and how to handle every common scenario.”

“Now having completed the class, I have learned so much about myself and my children. These classes have given me the proper tools and skills to be a better parent.”
