Let’s face it, parenting can be hard and unfortunately, it doesn’t come with an instruction manual on how to best help yourself and your child through every stage.

The Center for Children and Families (CCF) wants to help you win at parenting by hosting a series of free workshops that address the tough challenges that many parents and caretakers face while raising children, and will offer effective strategies to make your 24/7 job more manageable.

“We want to empower and encourage parents to foster a stronger relationship with their kids while tackling those subjects that are harder to talk about,” said Erika Coles, assistant professor, and clinical director at the CCF. “We want parents to know it’s o.k. to seek advice when they feel like they’re overwhelmed, but more importantly, for them to know that they’re not alone and we are here to guide them.”

2018 fall workshops include:

  • September 27: Parenting Through the Terrible Two’s & Threenage Years
  • October 3: Helping Your Child Handle Anxiety in School
  • October 18: Promoting Healthy Sleep in Adolescence
  • November 8: A Guide to Your Child’s Developmental Milestones
  • November 14: Family Survival Guide for the Holidays: How to Manage Holiday Gatherings with as Little Stress as Possible.

The Parenting Workshop series will begin on Sept. 27th and will take place from noon to 1 p.m. in AHC 1, room 110. For more information, please call 305-348-047 or visit the CCF website.
