Why Focus on Promoting Protective factors?
  • Protective Factors are positive attributes that
    strengthen all families
  • Protective factors are of interest to families
    and community
  • When service providers work with families to
    increase protective factors they build and draw
    on natural support within their own families and
    communities
  • These networks are critical to long
    term success of families

Does Your Program Build Successful Partnerships?
  • Are parents' opinions solicited and considered?
    Are parents invited to "translate" the five
    protective factors in ways that make sense for
    their lives and cultures?
  • Are parents encouraged to identify strengths in
    them selves, in their children, and in their
    family and community? Do these shape the focus of
    discussion?
  • Are meeting times flexible, depending on family's
    availability?
  • Are meetings held in locations that are
    convenient for parents? Are transportation and
    child care offered?
  • Are parents given the opportunity to identify new
    roles or ways of approaching things?
  • Do staff members speak the parents' language
    fluently?

14
Does Your Program Build Successful Partnerships?
  • Are materials provided in the parents' native
    language and tested with parent groups?
  • Are materials and messages provided in multiple
    formats to reflect various literacy levels and
    preferences (written, oral, graphic)
  • Are the traditions and values of the family's
    culture that influence child rearing recognized
    and respected?
  • Are elements of the family's culture incorporated
    into the look and feel of the meeting space,
    curriculum or other text and materials?
  • Are parent leaders involved in all aspects of
    program planning, implementation and evaluation?

The National Effective Parenting Initiative
Is the nation's first advocacy organization to
proclaim that it is a child's birthright to be
raised by loving and skillful parents. Achieving
this goal begins with each and every person who
assumes the awesome responsibility of raising a
child to commit themselves to being the best
parent they can be, and to seeking out and
receiving the best possible parenting education.
NEPI announces that it has started several
membership programs to involve hundreds of
thousands of like-minded individuals. NEPI now
has a membership program for all parents,
including biological, adoptive, foster, step
parents and for grandparents who are raising
their grandchildren. And it now has membership
programs for the professionals and community
agencies that assist and educate parents in
raising their children. All membership programs
can be accessed over the NEPI web
site www.effectiveparentingusa.org.

member and supporter of NEPI," "Our children
deserve and need the best possible parenting, and
NEPI has the clearest plan for how to accomplish
this noble and humanitarian priority." "By
working together," "NEPI members can make a real
difference in the quality of life in our
communities, and in helping every child achieve
their full potential."
