Parents Like Us
is a locally-grown effort that seeks to:
Recognize the many existing strengths that local families have and build on these.
Acknowledge that raising kids is hard and that no parent can be “perfect”.
Listen to parents’ concerns about issues affecting them and their children.
Mobilizes the local community so it can be a better place for parents and kids.
We believe families do a lot of positive things every day to keep their children safe and to help them grow. “Parents Like Us” works to identify these local positive parenting practices and to promote them more widely in our community. Using both a parent survey and small group conversations, “Parents Like Us” has identified a number of key beliefs and practices that most local families share in common- now we want to let everyone know the good things we found.
