PARENTING COUNTS is one of Consumer & Family Sciences signature programs designed with a focus on Early Learning. Scientific studies are revoluntionizing our ideas about how a child's mind and brain develop. These ideas have the potential to change the way we parent our children and how we educate people of any age. This program focus on the enviornment in which children can grow and learn. We will explore useful tools and information for parents, as well as educators, caregivers, healthcare providers to guide children to life fulfilling lives.
