Free parenting course offered in April

parenting 2Even the best parents can use a hand sometimes.

That’s why FSGC will once again offer our very popular course, “Parenting: Because Kids Don’t Come with Instructions.” It’s a free course, open to the public, for parents of children ages 5-9, starting April 5.

The course meets weekly for eight weeks from 5-6:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and will be held FSGC, 327 S.W. Frazier Ave. A meal will be provided for parents and their children ages 5-9. Self-esteem building activities will also be offered to children ages 5-9 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.”

In addition, parents who participate in the class will be entered into a drawing for a $100 gift card.

Group size is limited, so contacting Dr. Romig at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 232-5005 no later than Friday, April 1, to reserve a spot.

This program is made possible through a grant from the FSGC Foundation and the Kansas Health Foundation, a private philanthropy dedicated to improving the health of all Kansans.
