First Lady Dianne Bentley spent time on the campus of the University of Alabama Monday to tour the Child Development Center. When she arrived she was greeted by members of the College of Human Environmental Sciences as well as faculty at the facility.
During the tour, Mrs. Bentley was able to get a look inside the PAL center which is the parenting assistance line. This hotline is in place for parents that need help and do not know where to turn. The clients that call are anonymous and the advice is free. The people that answer the phones are certified in child development and family studies so they are qualified to offer help to those that call. This program is for anyone in the state of Alabama who needs a few tops on raising a child.
First Lady Dianne Bentley is please that there are programs in our state to help better Alabama families. As a mother of four boys and a grandmother of five, she knows how important it is to raise children in a nurturing environment. As a part of her efforts as First Lady, she will support this effort as well as other efforts that improve the lives of children.
