Family Service & Guidance Center will once again offer, “Parenting: Because Kids Don’t Come with Instructions,” a free course for parents of children ages 5-12, starting Monday, August 17.
The free course is open to the public and will meet weekly from 5-6:30 p.m. on Mondays at FSGC, 327 S.W. Frazier Ave. A meal will be provided for parents and their children ages 5-12. Self-esteem building activities will also be offered to children ages 5-12 who attend with their parents.
“Parents want to feel more in control but they don't want to hurt their relationship with their children," Dr. Connie Romig, FSGC Coordinator of Training and Education, said. “This course offers strategies that will help parents feel more confident while improving their relationship with their kids at the same time. This class can help any parent.”
As an added bonus, participants who attend the class six or more of the eight weeks will be entered into a drawing for a $100 gift card.
This program is made possible through a grant from the Kansas Health Foundation, a private philanthropy dedicated to improving the health of all Kansans.
Family Service & Guidance Center is a non-profit community mental health center that serves over 12,000 children, adolescents and families with a full range of mental health care services. FSGC has been improving children’s lives since 1904.
