Effective parenting is tough work. It requires patience, wisdom, and dedication. Even the most devoted parents can sometimes use a little guidance on how to handle the challenges of raising their children. The Parenting Center offers an excellent variety of classes, counseling and other services.
Topics for classes in the next two months at the Parenting Center include, among others:
- Caring for Infants
- Developmental Stages
- Systematic Training for Effective Parenting
- Heading Into Adolescence
- Stress Managment for Parents
- Positive Discipline
Most classes cost around $20 for a two hour session, and many are free. Multi-week courses cost no more than $90. In addition to classes, counselors at the Parenting Center offer private counseling for families and couples. There's also a free parenting advice hotline available from noon to 3:00 p.m. at 817-332-6399. Best of all, most of the classes are offered after 5:00 p.m., making them convenient for working parents.
