How We Make An Impact
Families First provides parenting workshop series to clients of our 90+ partners: schools, childcare providers, and social service organizations around eastern Massachusetts. We target low-income parents, who have limited access to parenting resources.
Our workshops are affordable for organizations and free for the 1,500 parents we reach each year. To help our partners engage and support families, we provide professional training and technical assistance.
Access hundreds of research-based, field-tested parenting tips:
Get to know and convey your appreciation of your child's unique style, especially when the strengths are not easily observed or universally applauded.
Avoid negative labels. Use positive terms to describe temperamental characteristics (e.g., “persistent”
instead of “stubborn”).
- Discover and affirm your child's strengths. Not every child will be a great student, athlete, or performer, but every child has qualities that make him or her special.
