Jamestown, N.Y. – Parenting today is a serious challenge.
“Active Parenting” is a program that helps parents of children ages 5 to 12 learn the skills to achieve a full and satisfying family life and to help their children achieve greater happiness and success.
Thanks to a partnership between the Chautauqua Alcohol and Substance Abuse Council (CASAC) and the Mental Health Association (MHA) and a grant from the Cummins Jamestown Engine Plant, this video and discussion workshop is being offered free in Jamestown.
Kathleen Colby, Director of Training Services at CASAC, will present the six-session program from noon to 2 p.m. on Wednesdays, June 6, 13, 20, 27, and July 11 and 18, 2018. Classes will be held at the MHA in the Gateway Center, 31 Water Street, Door 14, Suite 7, in Jamestown.
The workshop will show you effective ways to:
- Use nonviolent discipline that really works
- Open up lines of communication – before they get clogged
- Teach responsibility, courage, and other important character traits
- Encourage school success in seven steps
- Prevent future problems with drugs, alcohol, and sex
- Defuse power struggles with your children
- Stimulate independence as your child grows older
- Stop scolding and start smiling with your kids again!
Space is limited, and pre-registration is required.
