Could I Actually Consider Parenting?

Maybe the thought of becoming a parent seems impossible to you at this time. You probably have more questions than answers. We’ve talked to hundreds of clients who are concerned about things like this:

  • My husband or boyfriend doesn’t want the baby, but I do.
  • (for men) My girlfriend doesn’t want the baby, but I do.
  • How can I tell my family?
  • Can I parent and finish school? How do I combine a job and parenting?
  • Where will I live?
  • I want to parent my child and not burden my family. What about finances?

Every one of these questions is valid as you consider the possibility of parenting.

Am I Ready To Be A Parent?

Parenting, no matter what situation you’re in, is a challenge. Children, unfortunately, don’t come with instruction manuals. But parenting offers rewards you can’t find anywhere else. Your child’s first smile,  laughter, and many other milestones bring amazing joy.

Whether you’re married, single, or co-parenting, we have the resources you need to become successful. No parent is perfect, but with love, support, and education, you can be the best parent your child needs.

We Offer Resources and Education

We provide parents with the necessities they need to provide for their children while learning valuable lessons at the same time. Call 812-234-8059 to sign up for parenting programs in Terre Haute.

Earn While You Learn (EWYL) Parenting Program

The EWYL program is an educational tool that has helped thousands of parents since 2010. It’s a one-on-one program where mentors are paired with a mom or dad. Couples (or just moms) are encouraged to choose a topic of interest. Topics covered include prenatal care, nutrition, newborn care, reducing the risk of SIDS, car seat safety, breastfeeding basics, and much more.

After every class, parents receive Family Bucks and you can “spend” your hard-earned reward on diapers, wipes, formula, and other baby necessities. Or, you can save them up for even bigger rewards.

Because the program has been so popular, we started group classes which enable us to incorporate everyone. When mentors are at capacity, parents who sign up for the program start their classes in the group. Life is hard enough without having to go it alone. Won’t you join us?
