Classes and Instruction
There are many options for classes and instruction available to parents and families. A variety of online classes offer self-directed learning courses. Some good resources for online courses are The Online Parenting Course, which offers court-approved courses for parents, or, Family Matters™, which offers parenting classes for those who are separating, divorcing or remarrying. You also might find local workshops offered by national associations such as the Positive Discipline Association or through local hospitals, health departments, churches, libraries or YMCAs. Be sure to check with your local Club to find out about parenting courses being offered there.
