The Parenting Project: Healthy Children, Families & Communities
The Parenting Project provides research-based resources for parent educators in the Cornell Cooperative Extension system to enhance their work with parents and families and to expand existing programs. The project also provides training and tools to evaluate parenting programs and report on these programs by county, program and statewide to describe the importance of parent education to maintaining healthy families in New York communities. Community assessments are used to assist counties in identifying and assessing parenting education needs at the community level.
While our mission is geared to parent educators in the extension system, this information is useful to all interested in the connection between parenting and research.
