Testimonials by Parents and Children

This is the only place I can count on people really listening to me. I learn something new every week and don’t feel alone anymore.”
– Parents Anonymous® Parent

“I thought that parenting was something you were born with–boy was I wrong. I have learned that being a parent is wonderful, but being a teen parent is difficult. It is a bigger responsibility than I thought.”
– Parents Anonymous® Parent

“I have learned that spanking only teaches that it’s okay to hit. Time out and directing a child to a different activity really can be more helpful. I also learned how to keep stress at a manageable level.”
– Parents Anonymous® Parent

“My first meeting at Parents Anonymous® replaced hopelessness with hope. My second meeting replaced helplessness with new ideas. It’s now been three years, and I am the Parent Leader of my group. Knowing that you’re not a bad parent, that you did not learn good coping skills, can set you free.”
– Parents Anonymous® Parent

“Parents Anonymous® is an amazing support group. It has helped me gain friendships, learn useful child rearing information, and discover community resources. It has helped me make a transition from stay at home mom to working single mother. The friendships my children and I have made have helped us work through the loss of my daughter and have helped my boyfriend gain valuable child rearing information as well.”
– Parents Anonymous® Parent

“Parents Anonymous® has given me the opportunity to meet some amazing people that I now call friends. It had also made me see that I am not alone with my issues in my parenting; others are in the same boat.”
– Parents Anonymous® Parent

“I kept going to Parents Anonymous® for advice, and to vent my feelings of frustration and anger as a stepparent and for the support they gave me. As time passed, I grew and became a better parent and found that I was able to give back to other parents having trouble. Parents Anonymous® became a part of my life. I believe in what Parents Anonymous® is about and what they do.”
