Parent Café Resources

Our Parent Café in a Box and Dads Parent Café in a Box are the perfect tools for reinforcing Parent Café training and a great start for anyone who wants to start implementing the Parent Café process.

The colorful deck of cards asks questions ranging from, “What do you do when you don’t understand what’s going on with your child?” to, “How do you stretch a dollar to make it last?” There are hundreds of questions, and they all fit into the five protective factors that help strengthen families. Every time you have a conversation, it’s different. And every time, you learn, grow, and get to the heart of the matter with conversations that mean something for you and your family.
