Play in a Smart Way
Teen mom Yoselin wanted the best for her two-year-old son Jayden, but she felt she wasn’t equipped to give him the support he needed. Regretful that she never finished high school, it was her priority to make sure he would do well. She jumped at the chance to enroll him in the Rising Ground Parent-Child Home Program. Twice a week, a Home Visitor comes to their home with books and educational toys. Yoselin learns positive parent-child interactions that empower her to be a part of Jayden’s education. Jayden has quickly developed a love of books and learning and, because of his early start, is on track to do well in school.
