“As a parent, I understand how our everyday actions can have such a big influence on the way kids experience the world. But it’s a tough, exhausting job and without strategies to lean on, and a network of support, it’s easy to lose your grip. I feel very strongly about the importance of Families First’s programs because I’ve seen—and I know, myself—what a difference it makes when parents have support during the crazy early childhood years.”
