Register Today for Guiding Good Choices
Yes, it IS a parent workshop…but it really is FUN!
Another round of Guiding Good Choices will be offered on Tuesday evenings beginning September 18 and continuing through October 16 to parents of students in grades 5 through 9 in the five-town area.
Each Tuesday evening session begins with a dinner for all the families from 5:00 to 5:30. Yes, we provide everything! Then at 5:30 the parents and kids separate. The kids stay with two experienced childcare providers and receive homework help, play board games, work on puzzles, or draw. The parents gather together for the workshop portion of the evening. Each of the five sessions focuses on a different topic. Although the topics are serious, the program is interactive in nature and incorporates discussion and group activities. Parents learn a lot in a fun and relaxed setting.
GGC is not an intervention program. Guiding Good Choices is a (tested and effective) prevention program proven to enhance parenting skills and parent-child communication. Feedback from participants shows that by the end of the program parents feel that they have acquired more skills to improve family management practices, to increase bonding in the family unit, to assist children in resisting peer influence, and to network with other parents to continue the dialogue started in the workshop.
