Cognitive Domain
Volunteered to help out with the Catholic Charities activities for Non-Walkers Infant Music and Movement and the Walkers Infant Music and Movement.
These two classes are separated for families by the non-walkers infant music is for parents with babies who are unable to walk yet and the walkers infant music is for parents with infants who are able to walk and move around in the activity.
The purpose of these classes is to have parents and their child to interact and learn how to walk and control their child in the class.
This is class is beneficial for all families because it helps those who have babies who are non walkers understand how to walk and enjoy things around them.
The instructor of the class has a CD playlist from the beginning to the end on learn children's music and how to bounce around, slowly learn to walk, and dance.
Activities such as playing in blocks and a ball pit for families get to watch their child enjoy to play
When class is about to start the “clean up” song cues and this is the way for parents to teach their child to put things back together and place them in boxes and a bag to put away all the toys.
This teaches children to know what to do when the song cues and follow everyone else and the instructor by listening to what they will have to do.
Parent workshops
Parents learn how to become more involved by participating in activites with their children, such as making their own alien head bands, learning how to cook salads together, teaching each other how to do hand movements from music games, and teaching each other manners
These areas show that parents and children are learning together and for parents to become more involved in their child's lives in the near future.

Information & Referral Services
The children at the Family Resource Center display a range of emotions from kindness to aggression every day they are there
Stay and Play hours allows parents to model positive and prosocial behaviors for their children when they are behaving aggressively towards other children
Children who are soft-spoken and shy are often bullied by children who tend to be a bit more aggressive in their methods of taking toys
Squabbles over the two tiny NASCAR cars with many of them often resulting in tears from a child, if not both of them, as they try to take the toy from each other.
However, there are also just as many cases of prosocial behaviors among the children
Prosocial behaviors are encouraged and the fostering of such behaviors is highly supported
Behaviors such as aggression are discouraged not through negative phrases such as saying “don’t hit him” but rather telling the child what is okay such us saying “gentle hands.”
This discourages the idea of aggression or any other negative behaviors in general
