School Success starts at Home!
Invite your school’s parent community to join you in promoting success at school – host a parent workshop at your school. Parents will have the opportunity to meet school staff and other parents, and are more likely to get involved in their child’s learning. Parents will learn techniques to help with communication, cooperation, health and well-being.
Parent Education Network presents workshops to parent groups at elementary and secondary schools, and also to community, workplace and church groups. Workshops can be tailored to parents with young children, tweens or teens.
All of our parenting classes can be presented in schools (see descriptions). Popular topics are How to Talk so Kids will Listen, Positive Discipline, & Homework Strategies. Contact us for more details.
