Parenting

It’s called the “toughest job in the world” for good reason. Being a parent involves a lot of love, a lot of responsibility, and a lot of hard decisions. You don’t have to go it alone. St. Luke’s offers a wealth of information and support to help you raise active, healthy, happy kids. Take a class, find a group, or just discover good advice — with a little assistance, parenting can be (almost) a piece of cake.

Stages

  1. New parent? We’ve got you covered. Get tips on breastfeeding, join a new moms support group, talk to other dads, or learn about the special health challenges babies and small children face. Our classes are designed to help you get through these first years with the minimum amount of stress and the maximum amount of joy.

    Meet other new moms and talk about the joys and challenges of motherhood. You’ll not only gain confidence and support, but you’ll offer it to others as well.

  2. Growing up is hard work — just ask any tween. Children between the ages of 9 and 12 face their own special challenges as they transition from kids to teens, especially with their bodies and emotions. Help your child develop into a healthy, stable teenager with a little help from St. Luke’s.

  3. Remember what it was like being a teenager — the mood swings, the hard decisions, the clash between freedom and responsibility? Sometimes, teens just need someone to empower them to make the right decisions. St. Luke’s can help. Our classes give teenagers the information they need without judgment so they can make the best choices for their health and safety.
