Help a Parent. Save a Child.
A community where children are no longer broken in spirit by parental abuse and neglect, but well-nurtured by their parents, and the community, to achieve their full potential as responsible and productive citizens of society.
Can you see it? We can… And we do every day.
Evidence-based and best practice parent education program models show that the key to preventing or reducing the number of children who are victims of child abuse, neglect, exploitation, or delinquency comes down to healthy parenting. By educating, training and providing the resources to parents that strengthen and preserve the well-being of themselves and their families, parental maltreatment is reduced, if not eradicated, and lives are enriched.
How your donation helps and transforms lives
- Parent Enrichment
Our programs utilize methods that are educational and supportive, so at-risk parents realize successful self- and family-management; that is, self-sufficiency.
- Child Enrichment
Our programs teach at-risk parents healthy parenting; that is, how to prepare their children to function successfully as adults in the world and culture in which they find themselves.
At IPI, we effect life transformation through a focus on:
“a way of regarding situations, facts, etc., and judging their relative importance”Perspective either empowers or destroys. That’s because perspective affects the decisions we make and the actions that result from them. In other words, our thoughts determine our performance and experience. Parents learn how to view their circumstances from a solutions-oriented rather than a problems-oriented perspective, focusing on solving the problem (what I can do) rather than on the restrictions of the problem (what I can’t do).
“the act of or need for making up one’s mind as to what shall be done and the way to do it”Where we currently find ourselves in life is a result of our prior decisions. And most often, ineffective decisions are a result of ineffective or limited information. Parents gain a clearer understanding of how things should look and operate in life. They acquire alternative options for handling life’s challenges. For example, understanding the negative results of the current way they communicate permits them to attempt different methods of communication to achieve the desired result.
“a mutual connection, association, or involvement that exists between two parties”How often do we think that what exists between us and our kids is a relationship? As such, it is a constant work-in-progress, with consistent refining and updating of your methods of communication and interactions as you learn more about each other and in unity strive for cohesive goals. But many parents spend more time molding their kids into something (changing them) rather than getting to know them, then cultivating who they are. Parents learn to develop and cultivate a relationship with their child that edifies and is mutually beneficial.
