Parents as Teachers Supports Parent Educators in Ferguson
Parents as Teachers National Center (PATNC) recently invited Parent Educators from the Ferguson area to onsite meetings with mental health consultant Dr. Peggy North-Jones (see the 90-minute video of that meeting) and to a discussion with panelists Redditt Hudson, Traci Blackmon and Siera Irby-Smith (see that discussion).
As PATNC President and CEO Scott Hippert points out in this letter, it's important to focus on the children and to help them avoid the stressful situations that can negatively affect the ability to learn and interact with others.
PATNC is continuing to work towards developing a long-term strategy that supports Parent Educators and families dealing with trauma in their communities.
