Parenting Class


The Parenting class that we have is a compilation of two courses:


1.      How to be a Responsible Father/Mother - Stawar

2.      Active Parenting Now - Popkin (video-based/instructor/active participation)


More about the class - We will be having a speaker this year who will incorporate children’s first-aid and CPR.  We also have a partnership with Hachette Books.  They supply the following age-appropriate books to give to the graduates of the class for their children.


  • Active Parenting
  • Child Development (The majority of the children are in the 5 - 12 age group.)
  • Family Communications
  • Winning Cooperation 
  • Responsibility and Discipline
  • Understanding and Redirecting Misbehavior
  • Building Courage, Character, and Self-Esteem
  • The Active Family Now
  • The importance of reading to children
    • Articles dealing with various topics such as tantrums, honesty, teaching resilience, raising a kid who cares, working with lying, hyperactive vs. high energy kids, raising a good citizen, and more.  


We are flexible enough to add a few other topics as well, as needed by our students. 


There were 18 graduates in 2017 classes.
