Maryland mom tells it like it is

Valerie Ceary, mother of 3, talks to legislators about Parents as Teachers.

“We’re given a lot of information…and [parents] are kind of confused,” she says. Like many parents, she’s hesitant about raising parenting concerns with her pediatrician for fear of sounding like a nuisance or complainer. So “I really appreciate the one-on-one interaction with a Parents as Teachers parent educator in my own home where my kids are safe and in a natural environment.”
