Parenting Wisely class *

January 9 @ 6:15 pm - 8:00 pm EST

Parenting can be tough!  Join Formed Families Forward (FFF) as we host a FREE highly interactive 5 week class designed to equip parents and caregivers with the tools necessary to engage your teens in difficult family scenarios.  Learn constructive skills proven to lessen drug and alcohol abuse in youth, school and homework problems, delinquency and other difficult behaviors. Bring peace back to your home!

Using realistic video scenarios, facilitators will take parents and caregivers through common issues such as getting up on time, sibling conflict, doing chores, managing school and homework, finding drugs, and curfew. Parenting strategies include  setting expectations, praise, mindfulness, active listening, self-talk and I-messages, parental monitoring, and problem solving.

Parents and caregivers who attend regularly will receive a gift card at the conclusion of the course. Light refreshments are provided each session.

This is a 5-week course:  Sessions will be held on Wednesday evenings beginning January 9, 2019.  The dates are January 9, 16, 23 and 30 and February 6. Registration is for all 5 weeks of the course.
