As a parent it’s good to remember that you don’t have to be perfect. Your child is not perfect and neither is the person in the grocery store watching you parent in a difficult moment. This is a parenting support program for parents of pre-school aged children. Parents can learn from each other while exploring together about the development of children, how to influence their behavior and the importance of taking care of their bodies and minds. Parents can register by calling 788-8055 and leaving their name and phone number. Child care is available if you let them know at the time of registration.
