Parenting with Pride

Community Education Adult & Family Classes / Special Interest -
Community Education - Spring Summer 2024

Parenting is hard work! Parenting with Pride focuses on social-emotional development and strengthens the relationship between child and parent. 

Our goal is to help families create a calmer household, build and maintain positive relationships with each child, and help parents improve child behaviors with effective communication. 

Following dinner, parents meet as a group and kids have supervised time. 

The Parenting with Pride class uses Teacher-Child Interaction Training (TCIT) concepts, which are designed to strengthen positive relationship skills. TCIT teaches effective parent-child interactions and emphasizes the importance of emotional support, helping children develop essential social and emotional skills.

During this spring session Heather Sundberg, a district 4K teacher, will conduct a breakout group each week designed for families with young toddlers-4 year olds.

To gain the most benefit from this class, families should plan to attend all 6 class dates, which allows them the opportunity to learn and practice new skills.

Only one adult should register for the family. It is not necessary to register all family members. When registering, you will be asked to indicate the names of family members who will be attending.Tuition fee includes dinner for your family.
