Pre-k families participate in ParentCorps Parenting Program
 

“When I reflect on autonomy, I think about my experiences as a mother, making decisions for my family, educating my children, and having freedom to try different approaches, to fail and try again... And as a white mother, with white children, I recognize the privilege in this. The privilege to fail. The privilege to mother in a system built to support me in choosing what is best for my family. I believe that ParentCorps strives for all caregivers to have freedom to parent and support their children in the ways they know are best for their family.”
