“When I started my parenting class at The Family Tree, I began to realize what it meant to be a good parent. I kept going to the classes and each week I learned new ways to raise my son. Before long, my friends at The Family Tree had helped me figure out my strengths and find the confidence to use them. For the first time, I saw the possibilities of a happy, healthy future with my son.”
