Parenting Education
Builds Family Assets

We believe that strong families are the foundation of a strong society. Indiana Parenting Institute (IPI) provides family life skills training to enhance environments where children and their family live, work, learn, and play.


Our training sessions are designed to help families learn how to communicate better and positively manage their relationships.


Through these sessions, families acquire and develop the skills necessary to build strong bonds and create a supportive environment for their children across family generations. Whether living together or apart.

There is a science to healthy, responsible, productive parenting.  Do you know it?  Are you using it to raise your children?
