The mission of the Long Island Parenting Institute (LIPI) is to enhance outcomes for children by helping parents of children of all ages learn and practice effective parenting skills. Using research-proven curriculum and approaches, LIPI teaches, supports and empowers families from all socio-economic backgrounds and cultures. LIPI offers a wide range of multi-session classes, one-day workshops, and other training formats covering topics of interest to parents (i.e. positive communication, cooperative parenting, computer crimes, advocacy in the schools, children’s mental health, and more).
LIPI collaborates with various other service providers on Long Island to offer needed services for families. Services can be provided at community centers such as libraries or other social service agencies to facilitate access to information and support. Furthermore, LIPI works closely with the Department of Social Services and Family Court to assist families seeking training and information about parenting and child development.
