As a Parenting Educator for more than 20 years, Pam Bailey has strong roots in the communities that Families First serves. She has quite literally helped generations of parents.
A testament to this effect came about at a recent Power of Parenting graduation, when Pam and Anisha saw each other. Anisha was attending the graduation to celebrate her daughter, who had just completed a Families First parenting program.
Anisha immediately recognized Pam as the instructor from her own parenting classes, back when she was raising her daughter as a young mother. She still remembered “Get curious, not furious” and other timeless strategies that Pam has passed on to so many parents like her… and her daughter!
As the realization dawned on Pam, she said, “I feel blessed that I am able to help. The beauty is that these classes never go out of style, no matter who, no matter when…
“There isn’t any space like this one in our society where parents can come together and not feel judged, where they can learn about how children develop and use the information to strengthen relationships. I take pride in providing that kind of space and facilitating those discussions.”
