Stories from the Fussy Baby Network: The Latino Family Services Drop-in Program
Gilkerson, Linda
Zero to Three (J), v29 n3 p18-23 Jan 2009
The Fussy Baby Network, a program of the Erikson Institute, partnered with a local church to engage Latino families in a group drop-in program designed to offer parenting education, support, and early intervention services. The group format provides a safe and trusting environment where parents decrease feelings of isolation, offer support to one another, learn about child development, and have access to resources for their children. The authors share stories of program participants to illustrate how powerful a group process can be in making significant changes in parents' knowledge, attitudes, and behavior.
