Terrie Hess House Parenting
Parenting isn't easy, but you don't have to go it alone! We offer a variety of FREE programs to support Rowan County, NC parents, guardians, child caregivers, and soon-to-be parents, with information that will help you give your child/ren a good start in life, while getting more of the child behaviors you want (and less of the ones you don't).
Read about available FREE parenting programs, and find resources for each age group by clicking on each tab. All programs are currently available to individuals, or to groups, via Zoom videoconference or by phone.
Community organizations may request to have any of our programs, or information about them, presented at your facility. Please contact Margaret Stridick at THHparenting@gmail.com or call/text 704.431.2015 to schedule an information session, a seminar presentation, or a group class.
About the Facilitator
Margaret Stridick is enjoying her second career as a parenting educator. She is originally from New Jersey, where she worked in accounting and administration while earning her Psychology degree from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. Noticing how few programs exist to help expectant parents prepare for parenthood then motivated her to obtain her Master's in Human Development and Family Science at East Carolina University. There, she developed When Baby's Home and Baby's Home Now and began receiving training and accreditation to now facilitate 10 "levels" of the evidence-based Triple P - Positive Parenting Program. She is now one of the most active Triple P providers in North Carolina.
