Offer a parenting class for the families in your congregation and/or school free of charge! Trained volunteers will come to your setting (within Northeast Indiana) to lead the workshop. The hosting site will be responsible for providing photocopies of the handouts, snacks for the attendees, and child care (optional).

Strong Families-Happy Homes covers the following topics:

  • Strengthening relationships in home;
  • Understanding each child's unique traits;
  • Helping children identify and process emotions;
  • Increasing communication in the home;
  • Creating lasting memories through family rituals;
  • Understanding parenting styles; and
  • Choosing strategies for discipline.

The workshop can be presented in three or six sessions. Each session takes 2-3 hours.
