A Sunday Review piece in The New York Times yesterday titled “To Help Kids Thrive, Coach Their Parents”, reported out the results of several research studies of home visiting and classroom based intervention programs.
These studies took place in different states, even different countries, and they took place at different times. The results have consistently found that one of the best ways to help kids in poverty succeed is to help the adults in their lives.
Stable and supportive homes and environments for our youngest kids have consistently over the long term proven to be our most effective influencers for future success.
This is something that we at Children’s Friend have long believed, and we work each and every day to never help a child in isolation, we work with the entire family, to ensure that all children are in a supportive and nurturing environment.
