It's a difficult job to raise a child, but Success by Six is trying to make it a little easier.

It’s a difficult job to raise a child, but Success by Six is trying to make it a little easier.

With support of the Credit Unions of B.C., Success by Six released a child development and resource guide for parents and guardians in the province, along with a series of four handbooks for First Nations and Métis parents.

“We are thrilled to provide these one-stop resources available to all parents and caregivers in the North Coast region,” said Kate Toye, Prince Rupert’s Success by Six coordinator.

First Steps and Beyond is a 58-page guide that includes information on developmental milestones, nutrition, safety, finding child care, budgeting, how parents can take care of themselves, as well as a list of additional services and support.

In response to growing interest in parenting information for First Nations and Métis parents or guardians, a handbook series has been reprinted with permission of the First Nations Health Authority and the National Collaborating Centre for Aboriginal Health. The handbooks include Family Connections, Fatherhood is Forever, Growing Up Healthy and Parents as First Teachers.

Copies of the guide and four handbooks are available for free at the PACES HUB at Roosevelt and the Berry Patch in Prince Rupert, and at the nurses station in Lax Kw’alaams, Metlakatla, Kitkatla and Gitga’at.
