Commit to changing the world of parenting

As a parent, caregiver, educator or professional, you may be feeling isolated, under-resourced, and burned out. Children are experiencing big feelings and behaviors that can be challenging. When we feel overwhelmed or stressed, it's hard to connect and provide the support children need.

For over 30 years, Hand in Hand Parenting has been on a world-wide mission to help parents and professionals build a stronger parent-child connection while providing the emotional support needed to do this important job.

Hand in Hand is offering a Network of Resources to help make your parenting and professional work easier and a little more fun

Within our Network of experienced Instructors, supportive peers, effective courses and powerful Listening Tools, you'll develop confidence as you deepen your connection to the children in your life, resulting in more peace and cooperation in your family and community. We are here for you - especially when child-raising gets hard - and we are committed to making it a little easier, even more fun!

Just want to thank you for the incredibly respectful way you have interacted with me and for all the information and resources you have shared. I'm really happy to have found a place where I feel welcomed and accepted.
Many thanks - Parent Club Community Mom, UK


Hand in Hand Parenting is an evidence-based approach structured around five trauma-informed tools that foster warm, responsive, respectful relationships. Our Tools help families, caregivers and educators build a stronger parent-child connection. This strong emotional bond is the hallmark of happy, well-adjusted families. It’s also the soundest way to a better society.

A secure caregiver-child relationship is the foundation for healthy development.                          - Gray, SAO, Forbes, D, Briggs-Gowan MJ, & Carter AS, 2015

Every moment you spend parenting is a moment spent doing work that’s vital, important, and that has lasting value. We need to remind one another often: parenting is vital. It’s real work. It’s complex work. It takes many millions of moments to nurture a child; We hope you’ll remember the importance of your work, and that you will help the parents around you remember, too. - Patty Wipfler, Founder, Hand in Hand Parenting
