Parenting is about preparing your child for the future. 

Family time promotes parents involvement in child’s life, school and extracurricular activities. This aids in enabling the child’s security in being part of positive family and social interactions. 

Set school expectations.

Set up times to do homework and chores as well as family time.

Stay in close contact with your child’s teacher.

Parents should monitor school responsibilities with praise and encouragement.

Children benefit from positive social interaction, physical activities, learning how to problem solve, and family structure.


Enroll in my 8 week parenting group and have an open discussion with other parents about issues that you have with effective parenting. I will provide a specific format for the discussion. 

 Please contact me by Email me or telephone to enroll in these unique parenting classes.
