Five Day Parenting Program

Grant recipient: Merrill Palmer Institute

The program will encourage the use of 5 practical parenting activities every day that are linked to young children’s school readiness: 1. reading to their children, 2. playing together, 3. meal sharing, 4. expressing affection, and 5. ensuring children’s optimal sleep habits. The program will emphasize that positive results are possible with minimal time (e.g. reading at least one book daily).
