Holistic Opportunities for Parenting Effectively

Getting parents on board can be challenging, but essential to reaching the children we serve. The main obstacle impeding parental support is typically lack of understanding of our approaches and desired outcomes for their children. Successful parenting, regardless of the many personal successes the parents may have achieved over their personal and professional lives, will undoubtedly be the most challenging. H.O.P.E. (Holistic Opportunities for Parenting Effectively) is a comprehensive training series that fosters a level of confidence and competence in parenting that bridges the gap between home and school and draws huge benefits for parents, faculty and children alike. It increases retention for both families and faculty by creating a strong community of adults working together towards a common goal. Due to the many demands on educator’s/school’s time and resources, a school cannot always provide a formal parent education program however, I have found them to be an invaluable tool to winning the support of parents. I encourage all school leaders to consider implementing a parent education program, such as H.O.P.E, as an investment in your school for which, I believe, you will reap huge rewards.
