ParentWorks offers a six-week course

ParentWorks is a non-profit organization based in Knox County that provides monthly parenting education classes to families experiencing separation and divorce. These classes have run successfully for over a decade.

In answer to frequent requests for a more in-depth parenting class, ParentWorks has developed a six-week course entitled, “What Our Children Need Us To Know.” The purpose of the course is to educate participants in responsible communication between family members. This course would be appropriate for parents experiencing separation and divorce, as well as for parents in intact families during times of stress and otherwise. This course could be taken as a follow up to our four-hour class but attendance at the Saturday class is not a prerequisite for attendance at the six-week course.

ParentWorks hopes that parents will feel free to bring their children. Dinner will be provided for participants and family members. During the class time childcare will be available.

The six-week course will be held on Mondays, Oct. 4, 11, 18, 25, and Nov. 1, 8 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at St. Peters Episcopal Church in Rockland. There is no cost for this course, but attendance on all six Mondays is expected.

Reservations for the course may be made by calling ParentWorks at 596-0014 or e-mailing the organization at pworks@midcoast.com.
