Our Story

Since 1978, LCPC Parent Education has been helping families thrive by integrating time tested advice and the latest research. Our highly regarded teaching staff all have a Master’s degree or 20 years of experience! The program both educates and nurtures parents in a Christian atmosphere by providing quality education, resources, support and friendships- many that last a lifetime.

Last year, over 600 parents and children participated in our day and evening classes. And with our expansion of evening classes, we expect over 700 this year. As our tagline boasts, “If you have a child 0-18 years old, we have a class for you!”

Testimonials

"Put your oxygen mask on first! This is what Parent Ed was for me. We all had our masks on (Covid-style) but we learned how to put on our emotional oxygen mask on to navigate our tween year. I went home to apply all that I learned from my parenting class and really connect and redirect my tween during a pandemic. I am so grateful for this class."

- Karen Kim

With over 30 years in administration, education, and counseling, I am honored to be part of this very special program that touches so many lives. As a parent of three children, I am thrilled by all the practical resources we offer. My life passion is helping families thrive- and it has been my honor to journey with so many families in Southern California since 1989. I also love connecting families to the amazing resources of God- and watch Him work powerfully in their lives. Come join the life changing legacy of LCPC Parent Education where we honestly journey through life together!
