Baughman said her mission is to offer resources to parents of children of infants up to age 12, to help them overcome such barriers as child care.

“Anything anything they need help with; that’s what we do,” she said. “We’re all-encompassing the family dynamic. I also run parenting classes. We help any parent who’s kind of struggling with discipline, or they don’t know what to do with a 2-year-old who’s into everything. We can (help) in hopes of their becoming the biggest experts on their kids.”
