Does the youth hope to be a parent someday?

Teaching youth how children grow and learn and the parents' role in a child's development helps build a foundation for parenting later in life.

  • Awareness: Understand basic concepts related to child development and parenting.
  • Exploration: Identify personal strengths, preferences, interests and needs related to child development and parenting.
  • Preparation: Practice child care skills.
  • Implementation: Use parenting skills as independently as possible.
