Nurturing Parenting Program (NPP)

One of our new programs in homebased Services is the Nurturing Parenting Program (NPP). NPP is an evidence-based program designed to help parents enhance parenting capacities and improve the nurturing quality of their relationship with their child. the research done on this program shows that it reduces child mal-treatment and improves parent-child relationship and the ability of parents to manage child behavior. The NPP program includes curriculum for teaching skills, preparation of nurturing activities, and the observation of parents with their children and coaching with parents.
