The St. Tammany Parish Hospital Parenting Center promotes confidence and competence in parents, encourages optimal child development and enhances the well-being of the family as a whole.

Being a parent is a challenge. Sometimes you can use a little help, and the Parenting Center is ready for you. Some people with young children utilize the center to help their children socialize with others without experiencing the trauma of separation anxiety. Some families utilize the center as a support system to help validate the very difficult job of parenting. This also gives them the opportunity to observe that many of the behaviors of their children are normal! For parents who are juggling more than one child, our programs give parents an opportunity to share individual quality time with each.

As parents, it is nice to learn how other parents deal with the same challenges. Parents and caregivers may take advantage of the many programs that are offered to the community that deal with a variety of parenting issues.

The Parenting Center is not just for parents with problems. The center is for parents who want to build on their parenting skills while developing positive self-esteem in their children. The Parenting Center is not affiliated with planned pregnancy organizations, nor does it scrutinize anyone’s parenting skills. We are all in this learning process together!

The Parenting Center is not a day care or drop-off program. Most of our activities are interactive opportunities for parents with their children.
