Effective Black Parenting Class

August 21 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free

Parenting education programs can help you to become the most effective father or mother you can be. And effective parenting is the greatest gift you can give to your children!

Modern programs not only educate about child development. They teach very specific parenting skills to help you to productively deal with a wide range of challenging child behaviors. They teach parenting strategies and skills about how, when and when not torespond. They also teach specific skills to build a more enriched relationship with children.

This program honors the histories of African American people and recognize the special parenting challenges that racism and prejudice have created. Each program is taught as a series of classes with specific topics and skills.

Research on these classes show that they produce increases in parental confidence, reductions in parental stress, improvement in parenting skills, increases in the use of positive parenting practices and reductions or elimination in the use of spanking and hitting. They also serve to improve overall parent-child relationships, reduce child behavior problems, and increase child cooperation, self-esteem, social adjustment and academic achievement. The overall class serves to strengthen the entire family.

Childcare will be provided with RSVP only!
