The Hand in Hand Parenting Philosophy

Children, like all humans, are hardwired to love and be loved. Hand in Hand’s Parenting by Connection approach helps families from a wide range of communities to build or strengthen the all-important parent-child connection.

Research proves that a solid parent-child connection builds children’s social, emotional and cognitive functioning. Hand in Hand Parenting is one of those few programs around the country, and in the world, that focuses solely on that connection. By supporting parents emotionally and providing practical tools for the emotional support of children, we help parents strengthen their parent-child connection.

Deeply listening to a child in distress greatly increases the child’s sense of safety and connection. There’s simply no better way to handle emotional moments. As rewarding as it is, parenting this way requires internal resources. That’s why Hand in Hand has such a strong focus on empowering parents. We know it’s hard to build trust and closeness with your children when you’re feeling stressed and overwhelmed.

When parents follow our approach, their children make smarter choices, not out of fear of punishment, but because they are less stressed, more connected, and attuned. Their children also build confidence in themselves, which allows them to act from their own values and not those of their peers.

The challenge of strengthening families and reducing family stress is real. And so is the solution. At Hand in Hand Parenting, we’re committed to changing the world of parenting.

In our classes, we provide parents with the resources, tools, and the listening they themselves need so they can remain steady when their children most need their support.
