Today, White’s Residential & Family Services – one of Indiana’s largest and oldest nonprofit social services agencies, and the parent organization of Compass Rose Academy – announced a new program for parents and guardians in Crown Point, Ind. and the surrounding communities.

Nurturing Parenting is a free, 15-week program for parents and children that helps families build a warm, caring home environment. Hosted at White’s Residential & Family Services’ Crown Point office, Nurturing Parenting’s weekly, family-focused curriculum empowers families to change their lives and the way they interact with each other, explained Dee Gibson, president and CEO of White’s Residential & Family Services.

“Families today are busier than ever before, and many face more challenges than ever before,” Gibson shared. “Nurturing Parenting will help parents and kids connect, communicate and learn other key family building skills. Through the course of the program, the participating families will receive many new tools to help improve their parenting skills.”

Weekly sessions will include information on discipline, healthy child development, co-parenting and many more important topics. Children are encouraged to attend with their parents, and dinner is included for participants during every class.
