If Only They Came With Instructions, A Guide for Parents and The Parent Involvement Curriculum for Early Childhood Educators are books that were written after more than 20 years of working with parents and teachers.

The booklets listed on our catalogue page were inspired when Marlene witnessed numerous interactions with adults, which left children without helpful information or protective guidance in vulnerable situations. Marlene directed foster care programs, as well as a Success By 6 Program. She has been a consultant to school systems and provided training to parents, teachers, social workers and other professionals through many organizations. They include: Families First, Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, The Social Work Training Institute and a number of school systems and Head Start programs. She taught for nearly 10 years in the School of Education at the University of South Florida.
In addition to earning a Master’s Degree in Family Studies from GoddardCollege, she is a facilitator who was trained at the Program on Negotiation at HarvardLawSchool, as part of a year-long program. She also worked on a Ph.D. in Public Policy and Child Welfare for three years. Among her most valued credentials is her own role as a parent.
