Parents Empowering Parents


Milwaukee families are strong and beautiful, and at The Parenting Network, we believe it is important to celebrate your family's strength by offering you a FREE family porch-trait session. 


We will send our professional photographer to you, and he will capture your family’s smiles and pride in your own mini-session.


As a thank you for participating in our Porch-Trait Project, you will receive 5 digital images from your session and a printed 8x10 picture. Schedule your session today!  


Parents! Grandparents! Aunts! Uncles! Loving adults raising children! Please, join us by sharing what your family needs to thrive.   If you fit the qualifications listed below, and are ready to confidentially answer a survey about your parenting experience, we’d love to hear from you!


Please click the button below to connect with a Parent Leader who will guide you through the next steps. Once the survey is completed, we'll give you a $20 gift card as a thank you for your time.


Please Join The Parenting Network at the Urban Ecology Center in Washington Park to enjoy family fun! We are there on the 2nd Saturday of the month until Oct. 9th!


We invite you to check out our programs, whether you want to plug in for a quick conversation or pull up a chair and stay. We're here. No matter what role you play in a child's life. It's all about family.


Triple P is a valuable  (and free) program for parents that strengthens parenting skills, offers strategies to manage stress, and supports families as they build stronger relationships with one another. To learn more about Triple P, click here.
