Join Us for Our NEW Peer Parenting Program!

Do you need a calm space to talk about parenting?

Are you looking for non-judgmental support from people going through similar parenting struggles?

The Peer Parenting Program offers free meetings for anyone in a parenting role. Parents lead the group with the help of a trained facilitator.

In groups we talk about anything related to raising kids, including discipline, school, health, safety, and so much more!

We meet weekly and keep information shared in the group CONFIDENTIAL – within the limits of the law. And, we NEVER JUDGE other people’s situations or stories. We know how it feels…we’re parents too!

JOIN US for a weekly discussion to share and learn from other parents!

We all know parenting can be hard. Kids depend on us, and sometimes it seems like none of us could possibly have enough time, strength, or wisdom to give them everything they need. But, help is available! Other parents may know what you’re going through because they’ve had similar experiences! We’ll listen to you, talk about it, and offer our own ideas and support!

The Peer Parenting Program encourages the development of parent’s leadership skills – not just as parents and group leaders, but in all aspects of their lives.

The group meets weekly, starting Friday, March 10th!

WHERE: Salt Lake District Park Playground, 1159 Ala Lilikoi Pl., Honolulu 96816

WHEN: Fridays from 10:30am-Noon

Each week we will focus on one of the six Protective Factors, including (1) Nurturing and Attachment, (2) Knowledge of Parenting & Child and Youth Development, (3) Parental Resilience, (4) Social Connections, (5) Concrete Supports for Parents, and (6) Social & Emotional Competence of Children.

Protective factors are conditions in families and communities that, when present, increase the health and well-being of children and families. They are attributes that serve as buffers, helping parents to find resources, supports, or coping strategies that allow them to parent effectively, even under stress.

  • Protective factors are positive attributes that strengthen all families, not just those at risk, so families do not feel singled out or judged.
  • Focusing on protective factors, which are attributes that families themselves often want to build, helps service providers develop positive relationships with parents. Parents then feel more comfortable seeking out extra support if needed. This positive relationship is especially critical for parents who may be reluctant to disclose concerns or identify behaviors or circumstances that may place their families at risk.
  • When service providers work with families to increase protective factors, they also help families build and draw on natural support networks within their family and community. These networks are critical to families’ long-term success.
