“You never really know how to prepare for children. You can’t prepare. We are beyond blessed. Your heart beats their name. The rewards are endless. It’s a blessing to watch them grow.”

Parent Education Classes

Parent Education Classes:

Beginning in 2006 and continuing to-date, Judson Center has contracted with DHHS to provide group-based Parent Education Classes to Macomb County families who have substantiated allegations of abuse or neglect or children at risk of maltreatment.  Classes are two and one-half hours in length and run for 15 consecutive weeks. The program utilizes the evidence-based Bavolek Nurturing Program Curriculum to increase parenting skills around age-appropriate positive discipline, empathy, child development, family roles, and child indepence.

Parents are referred to the program through the Macomb County Department of Human Services. 

Due to the nature of the work we do, Judson Center upholds the privacy of the children, adults and families we serve. Therefore, photos and names may be changed to protect identity.
