Many things are said about parenting… "Parenting is the toughest job you’ll ever love"… "Kids don’t come with a manual"… "it takes a village to raise a child” … Family Connections recognizes that most parents find themselves faced with unexpected challenges and a lot of questions as their children grow, and we believe that all parents can benefit from information and support.
