Tough Starts: Family Matters

Tough Starts: Family Matters

The goal of this course is to help parents understand the toll raising a tough start child can take on them, their relationships and their other children. Family Matters teaches techniques parents can use to support each member of the family, and themselves, through these challenges.

Expert advice and real life stories help parents recognize what others may be feeling and exercises reinforce open communication skills and offer useful, everyday techniques.
