About the Founder
I originally started working with young teenage girls dealing with pregnancy and being afraid of parenting, They were having babies and throwing them in the garbage back in 1998. I wrote a program to help promote it in schools . It provided education to the teenagers how to nurture and not be afraid of parenting or responsibility. It worked;the young teenagers stayed in school graduated and the EHS program I worked for kept the babies while they attended high school for free. I was awarded an scholarship to DePaul University to get my Masters in Parenting Education & Support. I wanted to help out parents of all ages because we have a lot of Grand mothers caring for the children because of the high substance abuse problems and incarceration levels among adults that have children. I was a school nurse for 20 years I saw all kinds of social and emotional issues with families I believe I can help make a difference helping parent open their eyes to the needs of the children. Give them attention, support , build self esteem in them. Self motivation and encouragement all play an important role in parenting beside just giving them a place to sleep and food to eat.
