Parent Care-Jim and Teaching Grou[ the copyrighted parenting and family life management education curriculum developed by Jim in 1996 and continues to be the foundation of his parenting and family life workshops, classes, seminars and private conferences.  It continues to be a work in progress and is being updated as new research and information dictate changes.
It also completed the second year of being the core of the Parenting and Family Life Management Education Facilitator certification course at Horry Georgetown Technical College.  18 students received certification in 2008 followed by another 28 in 2009 and are now applying the ParentsCare strategies in their particular areas which range from child care facilities, to public and private schools, to domestic abuse shelters and faith organizations.  In two counties the department of social services and family courts have designated ParentsCare a recommended class for clients being required to attend parenting classes, and several of the certified facilitators are now conducting those classes.
still learning, inc. and ParentsCare have also developed COEP, Co-Operative Effective Parenting for parents who are parenting apart, co-parenting in divorce or separated situations and who might be referred by family courts or legal advisors.
Workshops, classes and conferences can be arranged by contacting Jim at If you would like to learn about the philosophy of ParentsCare and the areas we cover, please let us know.
Jim recently served as the resident parenting and family life consultant for a Mom-to-Mom blog that was offered by the regional McClatchy newspaper The Sun News.

certainly had the child outcomes reflect the research. You certainly got parents acknowledging feelings and children truly showing people the impact.”

“Loved your overall and very important message in the DVD and the music. I thought that it would be a great introduction at the beginning of a parenting course and perhaps at a one time workshop to get folks more involved. It was moving to me and I think would be to others as well.”
—Ruth Ettenberg Freeman, LCSW, Conneticut

“I LOVE the philosophy and the key parenting attitudes and skills that are discussed and demonstrated. I believe so strongly in the “IALAC” (I am lovable and capable) theory! The actors are great – both the parents and the teens– and of course the little ones!!! I was concerned at first that the “nurture” message was there but not the “structure” message. But as it went along, both messages were there and well balanced. The bitter teens were amazing! I like that you were totally honest about the negative things parents can say (and do all the time). This would be an excellent video for any parenting class.”
— Joan Comeau, Ph.D., CFLE, Minneapolis
Comments from parent and family life educators across the country
"I really enjoyed the video. I thought the role-playing examples of the two sets of parents was especially effective and is probably the part that stuck with me the most. It was very effective in helping me to be more conscious about how I speak to my daughter (and my husband as well!) and what kind of messages I send when I do talk to them.”
 —Dawn Cassidy, M.Ed., CFLE, Minnesota

“I think it has a lot of good points. I like the color black and white contrast. I like the story of the young man who eventually is in jail and the young girl in the club. I do know that you
