Parenting Resources


Parenting is the most critical job in the world. But it’s the one with the least formal training. Without good role models, it’s hard to know how to be a good parent.

Family Houston can help you develop the skills to be a better parent. You’ll learn:

  • Effective ways to discipline
  • What it takes to build healthy self-esteem in your child
  • How to talk to your child
  • The important stages of child development
  • How to manage your anger

We also offer Co-Parenting & Divorce courses that teach parents the needed skills to get through this difficult transition, and how to avoid putting children in the middle of their own conflicts. The course qualifies as court-mandated divorcing parent education and is endorsed by the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges. It is a Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) model program.
