Strategies to help today's working families in Northeast CT, MA and RI.


Thank you for taking the time to learn more about what JMHaines Parent Education can offer you. Many of these come from the Cooperative Kids methodology. If you look down this list and the particular situation that your family is facing is not there, please know that you are not alone. This list is not meant to be an end all or be all but more to give a broad overview of the types of topics that we can assist you with. Your family is unique, as are the individuals that make it up. There are families with grandparents in the home, single parents, and new families created through adoption. While there are common experiences that all families share, each family has their own exclusive situations as well. I invite you to call or email me and let us find a solution.
