She’s my “sanity pill” -- The Grier Family reflects on their Parent Educator Christy Bowie

As a first-time parent at a later age, Karel Grier found herself asking a lot of questions about how to raise another human being.

“It was timely that I stumbled upon Parent Promise as I navigated becoming a parent,” Karel said. 
“With the Parent as Teachers Program, I was connected to a parent educator that serves as my ally in search of answers to my curiosities.” Christy Bowie serves as the parent educator for the Grier family. Christy meets regularly with the family, working with them on a customized plan to help the family meet the parental goals they set for themselves.

“Christy makes sure that a holistic caring and understanding of my child’s well-being, my well-being and the health of my relationships embedded as a parent are addressed,” Karel said. “I would often say to Miss Christy that she is my sanity pill whenever she visits us twice a month. She is patient and kind to answer my silliest questions about parenting as well as relevant events brought about by the times.”

Karel said she also appreciates that Christy helps her pause, reflect and “perform the role of being a mother and a partner.

“I am pleased that Oklahoma City has Parent Promise to provide such services. I am grateful that I am a part of this worthwhile and noble endeavor. Kudos to Parent Promise for I found a friend, family and community in this place.”
