ParentConnect™ is a not-for-profit initiative founded by a passionate immigrant parent to promote positive parenting and a better future society. Results from a focus group study by ParentConnect™ shows that there is a huge information gap for new and immigrant parents to access the knowledge and resources they need to raise a family in an unfamiliar and time-stressed environment.
To create a positive future through strong values and positive parenting.
To build a strong parent community, both online and offline, for ongoing learning, sharing and communication.
The objective of ParentConnect™ is to create a platform for free and easy access for new and immigrant parents’ ongoing collaborative communication and knowledge sharing. Parents can join the online community for free to receive news and educational resources all under one roof. In addition, they will also be invited to workshops, seminars, and events to learn from experts on such topics as healthy diet, baby care, schooling, child psychology, staying active, recreation, child safety and family and youth financial literacy. Parents can also network with other parents of diverse ethnic descent to share experiences and thoughts. Public and private sector product and service providers will be invited as partners to provide information, activities, samples and discount programs.
