Helpful Resources for Parents

Parenting Resources 

Texas Government Code 2308.3171 requires Workforce Development Boards to provide information regarding local parenting classes. View the list of resources in the Board’s 19-county Service Delivery Area.

The Texas Workforce Commission has partnered with Children's Learning Institute (CLI) to help parents understand the importance of early childhood developmental screening. Learning about developmental milestones helps parents understand what young children typically know and are able do at different ages.
