Leverage and expand parenting resources

Want to Help?

Families want and need accurate, timely information about the development of their children, as well as connection to local parenting resources. With partnering agencies through a 100-Day Challenge Team, the community mapped all of the parenting education resources available to families.

A pilot program is underway in High Point to determine the effectiveness of having a parent educator — a professional who is an expert in child development and positive parenting — embedded into a pediatric practice and in OB/GYN settings. This allows families to get questions answered in a setting where they trust the source of information. Similar services have been embedded at Cone Health Children’s Center for three years, with excellent results.

In addition, a Family Engagement strategy, including a “hub” for credible information for families, will be launched in early 2017.
