Parenting Classes

Parenting classes are courses taken by parents to assist them in the care of their children. Some courses may be required by court systems due to abuse or neglect, while other parents feel like they need assistance in a particular area. It may not be that they are bad parents -- they just need to learn alternative methods of care giving. These courses are for the benefit of the child and can only make parents more involved, disciplined and focused on what is best for their families.

Parenting education programs are being developed around the country to help parents assist their children through communication, discipline and proper boundaries. The curriculum for parenting classes varies by commonly offered models are: Love & Logic, Common Sense Parenting, and Triple P Parenting. Education and training is also offered for pre/post adoptive parents and foster parents.
