What is it?
A seven-week program (once per week) in which a SECAC Family Advocate will help you learn effective parenting techniques for either young children or teens. At the end of the course, you will have a better understanding of yourself, your child, how to listen and respond, cooperation, and discipline. Further, at the end of the seven weeks you will then meet every other week for support as you begin implementing the techniques you’ve just learned.
Where is it?
Classes are designed to meet the needs of the family involved. They can take place at our Cleveland location, Dahlonega location, or even at your home. We will tailor our classes toward your individual needs.
How much is it?
There is no charge!
Who should attend?
Anyone! Our parenting classes are available to anyone and everyone—we understand that no one gives you a manual for how to be a parent, so we hope to come along beside you and support you through the process.
What are people saying about it?
L.M.: “I think it’s awesome. This class has taught me so much that I need to know about helping me be a better parent/grandparent.”
J.L.: “This class has been good for me as a daddy. I have learned a lot, but I have enjoyed learning-you make it fun to learn.”
Counselor: “I saw the children today. Dad was using the reward system you taught him in parenting. I could see a significant difference in their behavior. They were quiet and compliant. It was pretty amazing!”
