Parent Talks & Family Resources

Parent talks are times where an INPEACE ‘ohana advocate (teacher) meets with parents to discuss pertinent topics and needs, learn together, and, participate in enrichment activities designed to build relationships and have discussions focused on child development and parenting. You will also find numerous family resources provided by INPEACE staff and programs in ths section as well.
