NRV CaresNRV CARES | Parenting Young Children Courses

Utilizing the Systematic Training for Effective Parenting (STEP) curriculum for parents
and caregivers of children ages birth through 6 years

Before G-NET provided the G-NET Headquarters as a site for NRV CARES' Parenting Young Children Courses, Giles residents had to drive 45 miles one way to attend, and therefore attended very infrequently.


ParentingNow, at the G-NET Headquarters, Giles County families with children age 6 or younger meet to participate in a complete 8-9 week parenting course free of charge. Childcare providers entertain the children in a separate room while their parents learn about different parenting styles, how to discipline, how to gain cooperation, how to build a child's self-esteem and much more.
