A six-week series for parents on raising responsible kids and building happy families. Parent with a warm heart and a cool head, learn skills and strategies that will work for you and make a positive difference in your family.
The complexity of parenting sometimes gets easier if we look at both ourselves and our children to see what buttons are being pushed, and figure out why we are fighting about the same thing over and over again. Good parenting skills are often developed over time, but usually require paying attention to our assumptions about family life, our beliefs about child rearing, and our expectations of ourselves.
The Guidance Center offers a variety of community education, consultation and training programs on Long Island that can be presented throughout the community: at schools, libraries, local organizations, in the workplace and in individual homes. Speakers are available both for day and evening events. Honoraria/fees will vary depending on length, time and location.
Our staff is available to speak on many issues of parenting and family life. In addition we can also provide workshops for professionals in the field and businesses. The following is a list of some of the workshops that we offer. If you are interested in a topic that you do not see listed, please contact us.
