Parent Support Groups

My wife helped establish a Parent Center in the community where we lived.  Parents went through extensive training with the licensed Social Worker to become parent facilitators.  Some of the programs that were given: Sibling Rivalry, How To Talk So Kids Will Listen, Getting Ready for Middle School, Single Parents and Parents of Children with Special Needs...Parents and Teachers were welcome to use our Resource Library and talk to the Social Worker, Parent Facilitators and other Administrators.
