Parent Education Classes
Parent Education Classes are offered by Family Enrichment Center as a 12-session, self-help course. The 12 class sessions are based on the Nurturing Parenting® Program’s evidence-based curriculum, which research has proven to promote effective change. The goal of the program is to assist parents and their children in enhancing their ability to care for themselves and others. Parents will focus on establishing structure, discipline and positive communication skills in order to become an even better parent! The Nurturing Parenting® Program developed by Dr. Stephen Bavolek is used during this 12-week parent education program and is designed to provide the skills necessary for improving parent/child relationships. These skills include:
Understanding what to expect from your children,
Recognizing and responding to your children's needs,
Learning effective alternatives to spanking,
Creating clear and predictable roles for you and your child,
Helping your child achieve independence appropriate to their age.
These classes are offered at NO CHARGE to the parent and meet requirements for the Department for Community Based Services (DCBS) and the court system.
