Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender supplemental lessons. Blending Nurturing Parenting with the uniqueness of LGBT families.
A six-session educational experience that empowers parents and professionals.

There are Five Major Goals for Teaching and Understanding the Parenting Traditions of LGBT Families:
1. To help LGBT parents connect with each other and reconnect with themselves and their children for a meaningful progression to equity, dignity, and respect in a society that often strays from its commitment to establish equality for all people.
2. To help professionals advance the development of LGBT parenting skills by integrating contemporary concepts of parenting with successful approaches to working with LGBT parents and their children.
3. To present a definitive and different parenting program developed within and reflective of the LGBT future and strategies to develop a variety of responses to those outside the LGBT family.
4. To examine any negative messages and images of self and families and encourage positive messages and images.
5. To help participants (parents, co-parents, relatives, professionals, paraprofessionals, those involved with families, and others) become their authentic selves and, therefore, help children become their authentic selves.

The Nurturing Parenting Programs are a family-centered trauma-informed initiative designed to build nurturing parenting skills as an alternative to abusive and neglecting parenting and child-rearing practices. The long term goals are to prevent recidivism in families receiving social services, lower the rate of multi-parent teenage pregnancies, reduce the rate of juvenile delinquency and alcohol abuse, and stop the intergenerational cycle of child abuse by teaching positive parenting behaviors.
