The experiences of parents at home with their children have educational value when the experiences are backed up by understanding of what happens every day, by sound principles in approaching home problems, and by knowledge of good techniques of training children. The purposes of parent education work are to furnish parents with sound principles for application to their home and family situations; to change the attitudes, methods, and practices of parents in dealing with the problems of child training; and to insure to parents, through better understanding, more effective practices and greater satisfaction in their tasks. To fulfill these purposes, courses have been established in colleges and universities to train professional and lay leaders; facilities have been arranged to furnish opportunity for research, observation, and participation in such centers as laboratories, nursery schools, kindergartens, child guidance clinics, etc.; literature for the use of professional leaders, and authoritative materials for the use of lay leaders and parents have been made available. This bulletin has been prepared for the purpose of indicating where opportunities for training leaders in parent education have been available since 1930; how some agencies have been financed for this work; and to what extent the Federal and State Governments, church organizations, agencies, and organizations in local communities, take part in the parent education movement.
