Raising young children is one of the toughest but most rewarding jobs in the world - and kids don't come with directions. Parents of children 1 through 3 years of age can get help juggling its many challenges by enrolling in the "Incredible Years" class.
Registration is being accepted now for a group beginning Sept. 24. It will be held at First United Methodist Church in Bowling Green from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. and will continue on Tuesdays for 12 weeks.
There is no charge for the group and child care is available.
Offered by the Children's Resource Center of Wood County and supported by grant funds through the Wood County Family and Children First Council, The Incredible Years curriculum shows parents how to increase children's self-esteem and self-confidence, strengthen their children's social skills, discipline effectively, and enrich children's relationships. Because class space is limited, those interested should register promptly by calling Kristin Nagel or Deborah Goldberg at CRC at 419-352-7588 or toll-free 1-888-466-KIDS.
Developed by experts at the University of Washington, The Incredible Years program aims to build parents' skills so that they can promote their children's social and emotional competence. These skills are an important part of readiness for school. The Incredible Years is recommended by the American Psychological Association.
For more information, contact CRC at 419-352-7588 or toll-free 1-888-466-KIDS.
