Parenting does not come with a handbook but Parenting Teens Wisely does. In an effort to promote positive communications between parents, caregivers and teens, the Brattleboro Area Prevention
Coalition (BAPC) is offering the Parenting Teens Wisely workshop, on Tuesday, April 9 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm at the Putney Central School Library.
This free three hour workshop teaches parents skills and techniques to help them better understand and deal with children ages 10-19. Participants will learn how to problem-solve and encourage cooperation with their teen and learn to develop fair and effective discipline skills.
Two trained facilitators will guide participants to help build understanding and communication among all members of the family. The course teaches constructive skills proven to lessen drug and alcohol abuse in youth, school and homework problems, delinquency and other problem behaviors, as well as family conflict.
All participants will receive a Parenting Teens Wisely workbook, a parent resource packet, a certificate of completion and a $25 gift card upon completion. Snacks will also be provided during
Space is limited. Register online or call BAPC at 802-257-2175. This workshop is presented by BAPC in collaboration with Putney Family Services.
