Parenting classes will start next week at the North Central Missouri Mental Health Center at 401 Youssef Drive in Chillicothe.
The free classes will run each Tuesday morning from 8 o’clock to 9:30 September 17th through November 19th. Topics include an introduction to parenting; protective factors; why kids misbehave and what to do; 1, 2, 3 magic; and guiding children to problem solve and make decisions.
Classes also cover child development and building relationships for pregnancy through toddlers as well as for preschoolers; building relationships and values in teens; blended families; and school problems.
Each class will include a video, handouts, and discussion with certificates awarded upon completion. Participants can pick and choose classes to suit their needs, however, should make their own arrangements for childcare.
