Workshops, Seminars, and Parenting Classes

Parents tell us...

"My parenting class was really helpful. I understand her better and we have fewer blow ups."

"I was really nervous about my son going through puberty, especially since his dad isn't around.  The Birds and Bees class helped me practice how to talk to him."

The sibling workshop was really helpful for my daughter.  Her brother gets a lot of attention and she sometimes feels left out."
