Being a parent is hard work! Raising children is one of the hardest yet most rewarding jobs parents have. There are many challenges that come with parenting but remember you are not alone! Free parenting classes are offered throughout the county and are tiered based on your family’s needs. Some tips on positive parenting include:
  • Invest quality one on one time with your child. With busy lives it is important to capitalize on every moment whether long or short.
  • Get serious about sleep and routines. Children do better on a routine because they know what to expect. Even though some days will not go as planned a routine can help with things such as nap and bedtime.
  • Don’t ignore the source of misbehavior. If your child is misbehaving, try to get at the root of the problem. By finding the source of the issue you can choose the correct strategy to address it.
