The Positive Impact of Virtual Live Parenting Education

FamilyKind is very proud to announce a new article on virtual parenting education by our Director of the Parent Education Department, Yu Jiang (YuJi).


Increasing access to quality parent education through virtual synchronous setting: A qualitative study

America's crisis of youth mental health challenges has been worsened by COVID-19. Group-based parent education has been proven effective in intervention and prevention; however, a lack of universal access and the business of parents are significant barriers to participation. Rapid growth in technology-based education aims to increase accessibility but live, virtual parent education was understudied. E3 Parent Education (E3PE) was a free, virtual, and synchronous group program offered in Montana by a certified parent educator to support families navigating common and uncommon challenges.
