Raising happy and responsible children in the 21st century is so important. Let us show you how to enjoy and cherish being a parent, no matter how challenging the task may seem.

For Our Kids Parenting and Co-Parenting Services, will clearly show you the step-by-step process of converting yourself into the greatest parent you can be to your kids. Our classroom will help you transform the taxing task of being a parent into a whole new ball game. Raising your kids will go from challenging and straining, to becoming fun and exciting! We provide parent education in an effective, creative and unique way. You will learn new ideas, as well as proven solutions in helping your children deal with the many problems they are facing at home and school. It was once said, “You can't teach an old dog new tricks,” well; I disagree. Many of us came from the “school," where children were “seen and not heard.”

While some of our experiences were positive, we had a lot of negative experiences as well. We did not have a “voice,” and many are struggling today as adults in communicating with others. This has to stop!

Through education, and effective parenting tools that you can use “NOW,” you will learn what you need to do today to help your children become well-adjusted, confident, happy and productive adults.

You will receive parenting advice and positive parenting tips on dealing with communication skills, discipline, problem solving, family planning, and so much more. We also provide great resources on parenting books and referrals. Whether court ordered, or in need of basic parenting skills, this class is for you.
