Perfect parenting program The Coast Garibaldi health service and Sea to Sky Community Services society are joining together to ease the burden of parenting through education. The Nobody’s Perfect Program is aimed at parents of children from birth to age five. It caters towards young, single, low income, socially or geographically isolated parents, or parents with limited formal education. The program seeks to give parents access to accurate, up-to-date information on their children’s health, safety, development and behaviour. It is hoped that this will in turn encourage people to have confidence in their abilities as good parents. Nobody’s Perfect uses easy-to-read materials, group support and adult education techniques to help parents recognise and build on their own strengths and existing coping skills. Interested participants are encouraged to call Marilyn McIvor at the health unit — 932-3202 — or Barb Collins at Sea to Sky Community Services: 604-894-6101.
