Pathways Transition Programs, Inc. Launches Village Pathways, A Place For Parents

Share Article

Village Pathways, A Place For Parents, opens its doors to the Decatur community of parents, caregivers, teachers, coaches, mentors, in support of all adults who live and work with kids.

The demands of everyday life keep most moms and dads constantly stressed. Overwhelmed, many often find themselves raising their kids on autopilot, with little support, and looking for quick solutions to common parenting concerns.

"There is no one-size-fits-all formula for raising kids into healthy adults," explains Dr. Sunaina R. Jain, Village Pathways CEO. "Every child and every family is unique. The Village Pathways mission is to help the adults develop a more complete understanding about children's emotional needs and their own. Our services are designed to help them acquire the skills for creating their own custom solutions for managing problematic childhood behaviors and stressful family dynamics in ways that enhance everyone's self-awareness, self-control, and self-regulation."

The Village Pathways philosophy of self-care and thoughtful parenting is based on Dr. Jain's Growing Children™ Program which identifies three essential characteristics of a psychologically healthy adult (the ultimate parenting goal): having a realistic and stable sense of self, the capacity to form and maintain mutually satisfying relationships, and … resilience.

"When kids are surrounded by an informed parenting and coaching environment, they can develop the necessary life skills that promote self-worth and interpersonal connectedness with family, peers, and community," says Dr. Jain.
