This toolkit is a resource to inform parent educators as they engage, recruit and retain fathers. It is funded by the Promoting Responsible Fatherhood Grant #90FR0080 from the Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Children and Families.


Parents as Teachers is the trusted resource for the most respected organizations and professionals serving children and families within the early childhood development and education continuum. We equip early childhood organizations and professionals with information and tools that are relevant—and widely applicable—to today's parents, families and children, especially those in vulnerable circumstances.


We have put together some helpful tips for parents to better communicate with their children during times of trauma.
