Having a very special place for new parents to go to in our own communities is for most of us nothing more than a dream. But 21 years ago in Pacific Grove, California, Gail Root created such a place, a "Parents' Place," and it is still going strong. It's a parent education program offering classes about the prenatal period through age 3 and over 650 families per week attend. Gail also supervises and mentors 23 teachers for the 50+ classes per week.
