Better Parenting Plus

Community Discussion Guide

The Better Parenting Plus: Community Discussion Guide is intended to facilitate guided discussions and learning by parents, caregivers and others, all of whom are members of SILC (Savings and Internal Lending Communities). The focus is on improving parenting knowledge, attitudes and skills. We believe that better parenting is a lifelong learning process from which all of us can benefit during different times in our lives.
