Parents of children from birth to age five

The Nobody’s Perfect parenting program is designed to meet the needs of parents who are young, single, socially or geographically isolated, or who have low income or limited formal education offered in communities by facilitators to help support parents and young children.

Nobody's Perfect is a place where parents can:

  • MEET with other parents of young children (ages 0-5)
  • SHARE questions or concerns and ideas about being a parent
  • LEARN about child development, safety, health and behaviour
  • TALK about real-life parenting experiences
  • WORK together with the support of a trained facilitator
  • DISCOVER ways of positive parenting

Within a group setting, parents participate in facilitated sessions that:

  • promote positive parenting
  • increase parents' understanding of children's health, safety, and behaviour
  • help parents build on the skills they have and learn new ones
  • improve parents' self-esteem and coping skills
  • increase self-help and mutual support
  • bring them in contact with community services and resources
  • help prevent family violence
