Success stories:

“One mom was a first-time stay at home mother.  When she attended the first class she kept mentioning that it was her first time and that everything was so new to her, which was why she decided to attend the classes.  She seemed a bit nervous and unaware of things she could try out with her daughter.  As time went on, she began forming relationships with the rest of the parents.  She had a support group at our meetings, and was very thankful after each class.  It was quite heartwarming to see her grow in her confidence as a parent, and to know that coming to class was what she did for goal 3 of taking care of herself.”

“I began a 1B at Logan Library with a parent who has a child that has never been in childcare.  Her daughter seems to have problems socializing and letting go of mom.  She is very attached to mom since that is all that she is used to.  I have met with them a couple of times now and her daughter seems to be more comfortable interacting with other children while mom is in class.  She has improved in saying good-bye to mom and playing with other children.  It is still a work in progress, and I really feel that she will be able to strengthen the relationship she has with mom to where she can be more independent.”
