Active Parenting       -       A Parent’s Guide to Raising Happy and Successful Children Ages 5 to 12 

Communication • Discipline • Problem Solving • Positive Self-Esteem • School Success

 Bon Secours Family Focus is pleased to sponsor an exciting six-week, research-based video and discussion workshop called Active Parenting-A Parent’s Guide to Raising Happy and Successful  Children. Active Parenting-A Parent’s Guide to Raising Happy and Successful Children is organized around the parenting skills necessary for instilling cooperation, communication, courage, school success, responsibility and self-esteem in children. Parents will learn nonviolent discipline skills that really work and how they can set rules that their children can understand and follow. We will explore the goals of behavior and discover how the power of encouragement helps children learn positive behavior. Parents will learn the importance of taking care of themselves as well as their child.
