NPEN’s 2015 survey of parenting education nationwide revealed information about work being done in the parenting education arena, including how parents and other caregivers are being reached, how they are engaging with parenting programs, what they are learning and how those programs are promoted and funded. Data was also collected regarding the settings in which parenting educators work, what kind of curricula are being used, what advocacy efforts are being made and which of those efforts have the most success, and what are the greatest obstacles to providing more parenting education. The findings suggested worthwhile areas of exploration for parenting educators to pursue in their own work and for NPEN to tackle on a national level for the profession as a whole. The results also led NPEN to propose several recommendations for moving forward in advancing parenting education on several fronts. (Author abstract)
