Parent Effectiveness Training

March 21st – May 16th (Mondays) 6:30pm – 8:30pm

Whether you’re the parent of a toddler or a teenager, you know that parenting can be challenging- even overwhelming at times. Unfortunately, children don’t come with an instruction manual. And, being a parent doesn’t always mean that you automatically or instinctively know what to do. Parent Effectiveness Training (P.E.T.) offers proven communication skills that really work. When they use these skills, parents are amazed with the dramatic improvement both in their families and in all their relationships. Created by Nobel Peace Prize Nominee, Dr. Thomas Gordon, P.E.T. is a compassionate, effective way to instill responsibility and create a nurturing family environment in which your child will thrive.

Each family will know what they are comfortable with and what works best for them and their child.
