Meld groups are not meeting in person until it is deemed safe, but Methodist Healthcare Ministries’ Parenting team remains available to provide practical support to help parents and guardians learn parenting skills so they will be more confident and more competent leaders within their families.

Our team is offering a variety of virtual classes via YouTube that you can participate in on your own schedule and from the comfort of your own home. Click here to view.

We hope to resume in-person classes at various locations around San Antonio sometime in August 2021.

Methodist Healthcare Ministries provides practical support to help parents and guardians learn parenting skills so they will be more confident and more competent leaders within their families.

Using an evidence-informed curriculum and led by a parenting coordinator, Meld brings together parents who have similar parenting needs to educate parents on health and safety, child guidance and development, family management, personal development, and other topics related to successful parenting.

Meld stems from the belief that parents can, and do: learn from each other; give one another support; need to be free to make informed decisions about their families and can cooperate in groups while maintaining their individuality.

Meld groups meet once a week for two hours at various locations around San Antonio. Group participants are eligible to attend a free annual field trip.

There are three Meld programs, each geared toward the needs of the parents within the group.

  • Meld Young Families for parents ages 13 to 25
  • Meld Growing Families for parents ages 26 and older, grandparents raising grandchildren, or other family members who take an active role in the parenting of children
  • Meld Special Needs group, designed specifically for parents or caregivers raising children living with a wide range of illnesses and disabilities

A complimentary meal and child care are provided during group sessions.

Transportation assistance is available.

English, Spanish and bilingual groups are available.

Enrollment is free.

What does Triple P do?

The three Ps in "Triple P" stand for "Positive Parenting Program" which means your family life is going to be much more enjoyable.

  • Raise happy, confident kids
  • Manage misbehavior so everyone in the family enjoys life more
  • Set rules and routines that everyone respects and follows
  • Encourage behavior you like
  • Take care of yourself as a parent
  • Feel confident you’re doing the right thing

How do you do Triple P’s positive parenting program?

Our Parent Engagement program is an ongoing initiative that focuses on increasing active participation, communication, and collaboration between parents, schools, and communities with the goal of educating the whole family to ensure student achievement and success. This is accomplished by developing activities that foster inclusion, involvement, and a fun environment for all families.

These activities are developed by a campus team made up of the parents. Parents are the driving force and architects of the program, with the following goals:

  • Development of meaningful and fun family activities that promote parental involvement
  • Identification of community resources and specialized services
  • Advocacy for inclusion of parent "voice" in decision-making
  • Leadership development and civic engagement
  • Empowerment of all parents in making positive choices for their families, schools, and the communities they represent

Each target school has an opportunity to create or customize activities that meet the unique needs, catch the attention and motivate families in their specific community to increase academic opportunities for students, and build a campus focused learning community in partnership with school administration and teachers.
