About This Webinar:
Grow is the third program in the THRIVE Initiative and is available for parents of children ages 5 to 10 years old. Grow is a universal parenting program and is available in both an online format and a face-to-face format. Grow offers parents a practical approach for guiding a young child’s healthy development. The presenters will outline the online training modules that are available for parents and the training modules that are available for facilitators to offer Grow in a face-to-face format.
