Cornell Cooperative Extension is hosting a new Parenting Skills Workshop Series, starting in late summer 2014. The instructors will teach participants five skills that can help parents deal more effectively with difficult parent-child situations. The skills are: Encouragement, Can-Do, Choices, Self-Control, and Respecting Feelings. Participants will be able to practice their skills during the classes and reinforce the new techniques at home.
The Parenting Skills Workshop Series is designed specifically for parents with young children up to age 12. The program will be held at the Finger Lakes Community College Child Care Center, 4355 Lakeshore Drive, Canandaigua, NY 14424.
This eight-session series is scheduled for Tuesday evenings from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. beginning on August 26 and continuing on September 2, 9, 16, 23, 30, October 7 and concluding on October 14 with a reunion. This program is free and offered foremost to Ontario County parents working with the Ontario County Department of Social Services, Child Protective, or Probation Departments and PINS petitions.
