Free online parenting course begins Jan. 1

Dec 11, 2012

Rockland — Interested in learning new ways to tackle old problems while raising confident, happy children?

Broadreach Family & Community Services will be offering a new series of online parenting classes to local families with children aged 5 through 12 years old. Because of grant funds awarded by the Maine Children’s Trust, there will be no cost for parents who want to participate.

With Active Parenting Now Online, participants will gain the tools needed for less stressful and more effective parenting. For those parents who do not have the time or inclination to take a weekly class outside of their home, Broadreach delivers an interactive online option.

The comprehensive parenting class "meets" online and covers a diverse selection of parenting topics. And because it's an online parenting class, parents can complete the lessons wherever and whenever they like, and review past lessons as many times as needed. Aside from providing parenting help through planned lessons, the online class also allows parents to connect with other parents to hold discussions and complete activities.

Patrick Walsh, certified parent educator and father of two grown sons, will facilitate the course.

For more information on how to register for Active Parenting Now, or learn more about Broadreach’s other parent education offerings, please call Walsh at 338-2200 ext. 109 or email
