Subject:Re: Peer Parenting and Parenting Education Curriculums

In Washington state we have what's called Parent to Parent program. Part of it is about walking the parents through the dependency process and how to navigate but there are portions about parenting as well. It varies from county to county depending on funding and how long the program has been in place. Seems to be getting good feedback.

We are familiar with a few peer parenting programs nationwide (such as California, Iowa, Kentucky?), but are trying to identify other programs across the country, what curriculums they are using, and what parenting ed curriculums people would recommend in general. Any input would be much appreciated. Thanks! Pamela A.
