My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Parent Encouragement Program, Inc., Kensington, MD, USA
PEP came to the rescue when my son was 3 years old and I was at the end of my rope. After my very first 2-hour workshop, I came away with effective strategies for dealing with problems in the moment and a new mindset that enhanced my overall approach to parenting. The atmosphere of our household became so much more cooperative and pleasant--I was stunned! At last I was able to be the kind of parent I wanted to be, and my son responded so positively that I just kept coming back for more classes. Eventually I trained to be a parent educator myself and I have found a second home among the warm, supportive, and engaged community of PEP volunteers. It is deeply fulfilling to work with people who share a dedication to being the best parents they can be, and who are committed to helping other parents by volunteering their time to provide peer-to-peer training and guidance. PEP is an inclusive organization that provides a warm welcome to all kinds of parents and families. We are so lucky to have this unique resource in our area, with a 30-year track record of success and a vibrant program of classes, workshops, and other services provided by an all-volunteer workforce. Anyone involved in raising, teaching, or caring for children would do well to get involved with PEP and learn about an approach to child-rearing that has helped thousands of families enjoy more pleasant, harmonious and mutually supportive relationships.
