Parenting classes begin on Monday

BRATTLEBORO — Positive Solutions for Families, a free six-week parenting education series, will begin on Monday, Oct. 16.

The series provides information for families on how to promote children's social and emotional skills and use positive approaches to help children learn appropriate behavior. The six sessions are designed to give parents new strategies to handle daily routines, cope with challenging behavior, and help children learn to solve simple social problems. Participants will learn to create and nurture success in their child, to avoid being drawn into energizing negativity, and how to have clear rules and clear and consistent consequences. The program is designed for families with children ages 3 to 6.

The course will be held at the Winston Prouty Center for Child and Family Development, Vermont Hall, 209 Austine Drive from 5 to 7 p.m. Classes are scheduled for Oct. 16, 23 and 30, and Nov. 6, 13 and 20. Child care and dinner are provided for free.

The course is presented by Brandy Levesque, Winston Prouty Center Consultation and Education and Janice Stockman, WSESU Early Childhood Coordinator. To register, contact Brandy at 802-257-2101, ext.228.
