Parenting Classes

Family Support Council offers parenting classes for parents with children of all ages. Each of the classes discuss topics such as: parenting styles, goals of misbehavior, encouragement vs. praise, communication and discipline. They consists of six sessions, which takes approximately one hour. These classes can take place here at our office or in your home.  FSC also offers a co-parenting through divorce or separation class called “Children in the Middle.” This is also a six week course and is offered in both English and Spanish.  This class is only offered at our office.

Parenting classes can benefit any parent or guardian who wants to strengthen the relationship between themselves and their child by focusing on long-term parenting skills.
