“I have really benefitted from Parenting Inside Out. My eyes have really been opened to what I thought I knew. I am grateful for the opportunity to be with other parents, share our experiences, as well as our similar and different hardships, joys, and sorrows because these experiences have made me feel that I am not alone. This class is a great example that it is never too late to become the best parent you can be.”
