For most new parents, a baby changes life dramatically. Parents want to do a good job raising their children, yet not all parents have the support they need. New parents may feel isolated and frustrated about their abilities or just want to share the excitement of the daily changes in their lives with someone who understands. Most parents find it helpful to become part of a supportive Parenting Now group where they can learn about child development and share information with other new parents. As an added bonus, participants in most Parenting Now groups remain friends for years! In a recent Parenting Now survey, 100% of the parents who participated said they would recommend the organization to a friend, and 97% said it helped them become a better parent.
