Parenting Skills

Our Parenting Skills courses are educational courses provided to parents with the goal of improving family dynamics

Parenting classes are educational courses parents attend to acquire skills to better care for their children. Parents attend the classes based on court orders, or simply as a way to learn better parenting skills. The primary purpose of parenting classes includes improving relationships between parents and their children, and teaching parents how to deal with the daily responsibilities of maintaining a home and family, in positive ways.

Benefits of Parenting Classes

As with all educational programs, the benefits of parenting classes are many and varied. Parents are not the only beneficiaries, as improved parenting skills have a lasting impact on the children they are raising. Divorced and married parents can benefit from parenting classes in many ways.

  • Education about basic child development so parents know what to expect at each stage in a child’s life

  • Understanding how to deal with a blended family

  • Developing age-appropriate discipline, and learning how it is more effective than anger-driven punishment

  • Growing tools to work together as parents to raise their children, even if they are no longer in a relationship

  • Learning to recognize their strengths as parents, and how to put those strengths to good use
