How long has Practical Parent Education been in existence?

Practical Parent Education began in the early 1980's in Plano, Texas at the initiative of local business professionals and school administrators. They recognized the challenges today’s families were facing and believed that the community as a whole needed to join forces to support all parents and children with quality services and education.

Who writes the Practical Parent Education curriculum?

The PPE curriculum modules are developed and written by professional parent educators with advanced class work in family studies and extensive experience in teaching parenting classes. All curricula are field-tested and refined. Spanish translations are done by native speakers.

Will I receive CEU credit for trainings or the conference?

PPE is authorized to grant 14 (CEUs) Continuing Education Units through Licensed Professional Counselors, Marriage and Family Therapists, and Social Workers in the state of Texas, and Certified Family Life Educator (CFLE) credit by the National Council on Family Relations.

Do you offer general parenting classes to the public?
