I believe Raising the Children is a great program and I am so proud to be able to say that I was taught about it by Lorraine Kenny. I have attended many workshops throughout my career and by far, hers was the best. She made me feel warm, welcome, and accepted. She always referred to me by "Marvelous" Melinda even years after that workshop long ago. The name came from the Ice Breaker she had us do to get to know each other. She never forgot. She touched my heart every time she called me that. Little things make such a difference in a person's life. Lorraine knew how to do that. A wonderful lady, I'll never forget.

We can all learn from the training program themes and messages about love and sharing and community. Thanks for making this wonderful resource available. I remember running into Lorraine at the Sioux Lookout airport where she had just returned, tired but happy, from giving a parenting workshop in a remote northern community. She gave all of herself to something she believed in with great passion.

It's great to see Lorraine's passion for healthy parenting and healthy kids continue through Raising the Children. Lorraine was an awesome kid herself.

Name: Laura Calmwind

Lorraine contributed so much of her teachings and personal life experiences to make "Raising the Children" a worthwhile learning program. She was truly an amazing parent and grandmother.

Thank you to Kanina and Cal for your great talents in web design and creation. Also a big thanks goes to Florence, Garnet and others for their contributions.
In honour of Lorraine and her important work - I am pleased this website and its contents are available for people to retrieve.
Looking back at our own lives, especially the residential school experience, Lorraine wanted the best for her own children and grandchildren - hence her important work: Raising the Children. For us left behind, we will continue to carry on her work as best as we can.

I want to express my thanks to late Lorraine Kenny for being a visionary. Teaching material and resources for parenting is much needed by the communities and the parents. We need to bring back and pass on those teachings our Elders provide to us and instill it amongst our young ones.

It is so wonderful to be here on this day of the re-launch of Raising the Children. Way to go Kanina, Serena, and everyone! Let's keep the work going!

A labour of love, and a fine legacy to Lorraine's life and work.
Thanks to you all,
