If children came with instructions, life would be a lot easier. However, they don’t. Yet parents are expected to know how to deal with kids effectively through every stage of development. It’s a difficult job but fortunately, help is available and much of it is free.

Surviving Parenthood is a comprehensive resource guide developed by CAPC to inform parents and caregivers of the many services and resources that are available to help children and families living in Contra Costa County.

In its 13th edition, the resource directory includes information about protective factors that help reduce child abuse and neglect. Download a copy of the Surviving Parenthood Resource Directory. To submit either updates or additions to the directory, please download, complete and forward the Surviving Parenthood 14th Edition Update form.

Quotes

“I told my daughter that someone touched me as an 8 year old girl but I didn't tell my mom until I was 22 years old. She yelled, "Why didn't you tell a safe adult?!" I told her that we were never taught that we should. We just sat in shame. This program is amazing and THANK YOU!”
