The National Parent Education Network defines parent education as “a process that involves the expansion of insights, understanding and attitudes and the acquisition of knowledge and skills about the development of both parents and of their children and the relationship between them.”

Parenting education programs offer multiple benefits to parents (and other primary caregivers) and children. Parents may develop new skills that can lead to increased competence and positive parenting practices, while children may indirectly benefit from changes or improvements in their parents’ behaviors. Parenting education programs teach parents how to keep their children healthy, safe, and ready to start school with the cognitive, social, and emotional skills needed to learn.

This content focuses primarily on parenting education programs that target parents of young children (0-5 years of age). Although programs may target parents of children 0 – 18 years of age, early intervention services for parents are favorable since development during early childhood can shape later physical, social and cognitive development.
