Parented Summary



Parent educators have the unique task of educating diverse groups of parents about a multitude of topics, each related to understanding their child’s development and building the parents’ skills. Often, parent educators must create their own programs and research hundreds of resources to compile the right combination of topic modules to fit their needs.

The author of The Parents Toolshop is a second-generation parent educator who has been training parents for over 25 years and training parent educators for over 15 years — and she’s happy to share her expertise and resources with you.

Check out the dozens of resources we have for parent educators:
