Enrich your child’s life and your own by attending the “Incredible Years” parenting program on Mondays, starting March 7, in English. The series will be held at the Cascade Locks School.
This program is for parents, grandparents, foster parents, and child care providers of children from two to eight years old. The parenting program is for any parent who wants to learn some new ideas and effective parenting skills that will make parenting easier and will help your child thrive.
Come the first night, 5:30-7:30 p.m., for an overview of the 12 week series, a chance to win a door prize, a free dinner, free child care, and to enjoy meeting other parents who have young children.
Some of the topics that will be covered in the series include how to improve your child’s success in school, teaching your child about their emotions, how to use positive discipline techniques, effective ways to praise, teaching your child calming techniques, and establishing household routines. You will learn how to use “specific praise” to shape your child’s behavior which teaches much more than saying “you did a good job.”
Your children will also have a fun time with music, dance, and art activities.
This program is free. For more information or to sign up for the English series, call Nancy at toll free 1-855-308 2236 or 541399-4276.
