Welcome to Parenting and Educating Children for
Life Success in the 21st Century.
Informed parenting, co-parenting, family relationships, and healthy kids are IPI's favorite topics of conversation.
Did you know?
Parenting is a learned skill. It is also an occupation. And as the work world has taught us, the better our knowledge and skills, the better our outcomes. If you are seeking the best for your children, let IPI's experienced professional Parent Educators help you get there.
Why Parenting Education?
To become and remain effective, people need training. Even caregivers (parents).
Caregiving is both a learned skill and a dynamic enterprise. It is affected daily by new, uncharted influences. To best manage this influx of new technologies, new norms, and new information, care-giving (like all learned skills) needs regular updating to remain relevant and productive. Parenting (or Family) education is the vehicle for accomplishing this.
Yet, research shows that most parents are unaware of the modern parenting practices available to assist with their childrearing issues because they've never even considered a parenting class.
As a result, research further shows that most child abuse and neglect is committed by a parent:
reported as perpetrators or for child neglect
of children victimized by a parent
children are abused in the U.S. each year
Why struggle, when your answer is just a phone call away?

"Modern Parenting for modern children requires modern parenting skills. I finally got it!
Old parenting skills don't work on today's kids."

What's Most Important for You and Your Family?
Parenting & Family Life Skills
Parenting is multifaceted. At IPI, parents learn about a child's diverse needs and how to effectively respond to their behaviors that are communicating those needs. B2E provides parents with a depth and breadth of understanding and skills around child growth and development, equipping them to keep their children safe and healthy.
Healthy relationships within your sphere of influence are essential to your emotional and mental health and well-being. In our Relationship Management sessions, you'll obtain insight into the core skills needed to build functional relationships with anyone – kids, partners, colleagues, even yourself.
