NORTH BALTIMORE - Childhood is a time of discovery for both children and their parents. Children don't come with a "how to" handbook, and every age brings its unique challenges. To help parents make the most of this special time, the Children's Resource Center of Wood County will offer its Incredible Years class at Powell Elementary, 500 N. Main, North Baltimore.
The first session will be Tuesday at 5:30 p.m.
This free twelve-week parenting skills program is designed for families of children ages 6 through 12. Limited on-site child care and a light meal are provided.
For more information, call Kristin Nagel at 419-352-7588 or (toll-free) 888-466-KIDS (5437.)
The Incredible Years series emphasizes positive parenting skills.  It offers strategies for managing children's behavior and helping them succeed in school. The class allows parents to share experiences with each other, building a support network that lasts after the class is finished.  Participants receive a completion certificate upon finishing all twelve sessions.
The Incredible Years class is offered several times each year in various locations around Wood County. For more information about this and other CRC classes, call 419-352-7588.

"Girl Culture" is the theme of Bowling Green State University's 2014 Women's History Month celebration, with programs that explore the meaning of girlhood and the experiences of contemporary girls in the U.S.
The month kicks off Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in 308 Bowen-Thompson Student Union, with the children's event "Toss the Tiara: An Alternative Dress-up and Role Model Day for 3-6 Year Olds." The costumes are from careers in which women are underrepresented, such as farming and aviation.
The program is free and open to the public.
A month's worth of events that appeal to girls and women of all ages, and those who care about them, are planned by the BGSU Women's Center and the Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies Program in partnership with 15 co-sponsoring organizations on and off campus. All the programs are free of charge.
The keynote event is a March 28 talk on "Risk and Responsibility: Naming and Disrupting the Inequalities in Girls' Lives," with sociologist Dr. Lorena Garcia of the University of Illinois at Chicago. Garcia studies youth and the roles of gender, sexuality, race, social class and ethnicity in their lives. Her 2013 book "Respect Yourself, Protect Yourself" won the American Sociological Association Distinguished Book Award in the Race, Gender and Class section.
