Because children do not come with instructions

Intentional Parenting 2017-04-12T16:57:06+00:00

Parents, guardians and caring adults and are the most important factors in building strong families and empowered youth.  Their presence, guidance, encouragement, and modeling are essential for family stability and positive youth development.  Children, however, do not arrive with instructions and no two children are alike. What is a parent to do?

Monthly parent workshops are provided to strengthen families by encouraging, supporting and equipping parents to successfully navigate the different developmental stages of their children. Our parent workshops series have been conducted for parents in schools, after-school programs, churches and community organizations. Custom parent workshops have been designed for organizations that needed parent training on specific topics.

This was a great workshop. I learned about things that I had no idea would affect my child.  Everything was broken down in a way that I’ll be able to use in my household.  The material was very helpful and I can’t wait to use the information and resources to help my child become all of the things I have in mind for the future.

This workshop was excellent. I think you should visit every school in Baltimore City. The parents could definitely benefit from the workshop.

I need her in my house. She is a remarkable speaker; very helpful with information on how to get the message across.

Very informative. I feel I can talk a little more with my child without me laughing to keep from crying.

Chisha Johnson prepared me very well for talking to my 5th grader about sex. Before this presentation I had no idea what I would say to my child about sex. Now I know exactly how to go about this particular conversation.

This workshop was a breath of fresh air. I really could have used this 19 years ago but very happy to have now. This presentation should be an all day one.  There is so much information we probably did not even get the opportunity to get to. Thankful for the frankness, knowledge and overall delivery from the presenter.

The presentation was excellent. It’s much needed and the strategies will be used.

This workshop taught me most of what I have taken for granted.

I would like to have more classes like this.
