In-person Parent Education provides the advantage of live discussion, but discussion and break requirements add to the time commitment. There are fewer in-person courses to choose from than online parent education programs, and in-person classes are generally more expensive.
There are fewer barriers to attending an online parent education course because parents need not travel or hire childcare. They work at their own pace and do not need to alter their daily commitments to participate in a class.
Online Parent Education will require a basic knowledge of their mobile device or personal computer, access to a working email, and the internet.
