Here is what others have to say about the Parent Resource Centre

"  Hi, my name is Cherie and I am completing my Masters Degree in Social Work at Carleton University.  I recently completed a four-month practicum at Parent Resource Centre.  Before coming here, I knew about the amazing playgroups that PRC operated since I brought my two older sons here when they were small. However, I was unaware of all the other fantastic things PRC was doing for and in the community.  My time here was a great experience for two reasons.  First, it was a great learning experience.  My supervisor was extremely supportive and facilitated getting the most out of my placement as an In-Home Parenting Educator.  Secondly, the remarkable group of women as well as the values of the organization create an environment of balanced work life, well being, and growth.  I know that PRC will continue to do great things in the community and I will miss being a part of the team.

"[Thanks to the work I did with my counsellor] I became aware that the key to a better relationship with my kids actually started with me. I had to lead by example and model healthy behaviours. I recognized that working with my counsellor was an opportunity to heal.

"  My life was upside down. No one ever showed me how to take care of myself as a parent or told me why it was important,” she shares.  I had to take a hard look at everything I had been through in my life and change my filter to see things differently. When I was able to separate things that were done to me from things I had control over, I could start reclaiming my life. I now recognize my strengths and how resilient I have become.
