About Parent Parties

Welcome to PARENT PARTIES and thank you for your interest. We hope that this creative program will benefit you in your endeavor to promote parent education and increase parent involvement in your own school or organization.

PARENT PARTIES create a fun and relaxed environment to present valuable information that is included in this program’s Keys To Successful Parenting, promote your school or organization activities, and to teach and promote the importance of parent involvement through the fun and interactive PARENT PARTIES games.

PARENT PARTIES is a product of our experience of working in the non-profit agency of Second Mile Development, Inc. of Huntsville, Alabama to increase parent involvement in schools for more than a decade. After many years of effort including meetings, workshops and seminars, PARENT PARTIES is our most effective tool to reach parents. We have watched our parent groups change and increase since the use of the PARENT PARTIES Program. Having worked in many schools where each game and activity is tried and tested, we can assure you that parents enjoy this new concept of combining fun with education. In fact the PARENT PARTIES slogan is, “No More Meetings for Us! Let’s Have a Party!”

We hope that PARENT PARTIES will meet the needs of your school or organization. If we can assist you in any way, feel free to contact us personally.

Our greatest passion is to empower parents to make a difference in the lives of their children. As the creators of this program, we wish you the best in all of your parent involvement efforts.
