Sign up now for summer Positive Parenting classes!
This summer, CAPS Positive Parenting offers a variety of ways for parents and children to grow closer as a family.
Parenting classes guide parents through the twists and turns of parenting. Whether it is trying to get children to bed on time, encouraging them to clean up after themselves, or just learning how to have a productive conversation with your teenager, CAPS can help.
Positive Parenting is offering its full 10-week class for parents and children as well as a trio of three-week short series classes on specific topics.
Register now for the 10-week classes Tuesday mornings (Aug. 11 to Oct. 13) from 9 a.m. to noon at the Joy Rose Center, 1000 W. Hively Ave., in Elkhart. The total cost is $50 per family, which includes meals, family-fun activities and child care for children to age 12. These classes are available only in English.
