Children are our most important resource. Encouraging children's healthy growth and development is the responsibility of all members of any community. Doing it well means we need knowledge about children, how they learn and grow, and how best to meet their needs. It also requires patience and commitment. 
The parenting course will prepare you for roles as family and community members, parents, and caregivers. Through this course, you will develop realistic expectations for children and how best to promote their physical, emotional, social, and psychological development.
