Here, Now and Down the Road…Tips for Loving Parents

Here, Now and Down the Road (HNDR) is a strengths-based parent education program designed to promote the resilient development of children ages three to eight. HNDR helps foster positive relationships between parents and children and offers strategies that help parents support their children’s social-emotional development. Wingspan-trained parent educators lead groups through lively, interactive modules that help parents apply the concepts they learn to their own family life.

Here, Now and Down the Road training also enhances parents’ abilities to:

  • model for their children the use of self-control, brainstorming, creativity, and problem-solving
  • listen to their children, set appropriate expectations for their children, and involve their children in meaningful ways in home life
  • build their children’s skills to deal with difficult life situations in safe and healthy ways

Parents participating in HNDR sessions feel more connected to their children and are more optimistic about their own parenting abilities. HNDR enhances the skills of parents to guide their children towards living safe, healthy and productive lives.
