Healthy Parenting Program

Established at A Child’s Place in 2017, the Healthy Parenting Program provides caregivers with support and a broad range of tools to help foster healthy, happy families, using the internationally recognized parenting curriculum Triple P.
 

Triple P is an evidence-based program that focuses on goal-setting and problem solving specific to individual families’ needs, regardless of their circumstances. It aims to prevent problems in the family, school, and community before they arise and to create family environments that encourage children to realize their full potential. 

The Healthy Parenting certified Parent Educators offer families an opportunity to participate in free parenting classes, which are available in both group and individual sessions. The Healthy Parenting Program helps caregivers raise happier children, manage misbehavior, and set rules and routines to make the family feel more confident and successful. 

 

A Child’s Place, PA offers the Healthy Parenting Program to all families in Allegheny, Beaver, and Fayette County free of charge. To register for sessions, please contact the Healthy Parenting site for your county, email healthyparenting@achildsplacepa.org, or submit an online referral here

My name is Felice and I am a Parent Educator in Allegheny County. I have been certified in Level 4 for Standard (individual), Group, and Level 4 Teens. I have been working with families in literacy, child development, and strengthening the parent-child bond for 25 years.

 

My greatest knowledge in regards to parenting, has been learned the old fashioned way: by raising my own children into adulthood. My favorite Triple P Strategy is, “logical consequences.” When rules are broken, there is a consequence, and the parent does not need to get angry and yell. 

Hi, my name is Alicia! I have a BA in Anthropology and International Studies from Indiana University of Pennsylvania with a Certificate in Middle Eastern Studies. I have previously worked in Child Welfare as a Protective Care Caseworker and Family Advocate. I have also worked in Refugee Resettlement and Community Organizing. I have two calico cats, I love listening to True Crime Podcasts, and amusement parks are my happy place.

 

I am accredited to teach the Triple P Level 4 Standard curriculum to Beaver County caregivers of children between the ages of 0-12. My favorite parenting strategy is directed discussion because it gives families a chance to connect, it gives the child another opportunity to make good decisions and learn new skills, and problem behaviors can be addressed without escalation. I look forward to continuing to serve our community and the families of Beaver County!

My name is Jenyne and I’m a certified Professional School Counselor and have worked for years in schools across the globe helping develop healthy, happy citizens of tomorrow! I now have the privilege of working with A Child’s Place, helping families build a strong foundation of love and safety for their children. I have two children who have taught me the joys and hardships of being a parent. Parenting is the hardest job and there is no manual or training. We learn through our experiences and many times those experiences stretch us beyond what we thought was possible. My favorite parenting technique that I use daily with my own children (and my partner 😃 ) is using Clear, Calm Directions. When I list a hundred expectations, it’s easy for my kids to miss or ignore the one they dread the most.  Being calm, getting eye contact, then giving them a single instruction limits the chances they will ignore my request… most days!
