Shirley's Story

Shirley enrolled in The Family Tree’s 12-week, curriculum-based Positive Parenting Program and found the answers she needed. The program gave her something solid to learn from and she liked being able to bounce ideas off of other parents. “The classes taught me how to handle things for both my kids and myself,” Shirley says. “I really began to improve as a mother. It helped me see the good and the love, no matter how hard things were.” Today, Shirley and her son are working together to create consequences and behavior options and he is better able to handle his feelings. As for Shirley, she is now one of The Family Tree’s most dedicated volunteers. “I want to give people what was given to me: a lifeline for getting through the day.”





Lives Changed

I would definitely recommend The Family Tree to parents who need support. They helped us a lot to become better parents.
