January & February: We'll explore the most significant parenting skills important to raise a child who becomes an adult.
March & April: We'll explore topics such as addiction, sex education in your home, anxiety, depression and suicide and the use of technology.
Please join us if you are interested in participating in a community of parents who are curious and willing to look at some difficult questions in raising children.
This class is designed to provide continuity of information and relevant discussion over a nine month school year. Discussion is based on topic, curiosity and need. The goal is look at the information that is available and to compare and contrast the pros and cons as they apply to you as a parent and to your family. We are all individuals whose thoughts and feelings either compliment what we want for our children or fight our implementation of what we want for our children.
There is always lots of laughter and support in these classes. You do not have to be at every class to participate. We will not be taking attendance!
