Parenting Skills Workshops

Parenting Skills Workshop Series #98
Hosted by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ontario County
September 1 - October 20, 2020
6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

It takes a lot of skills to be a good parent, but there are some skills that will really make a difference in how well an adult raises their children. If you are a parent or know of a parent who is struggling to understand what works and what doesn't with child-rearing, there is a good opportunity coming up in September, 2020. 

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ontario County is hosting a new Parenting Skills Workshop Series starting September 1, 2020. The instructors will teach participants five (5) skills that can help parents deal more effectively with difficult parent-child situations. The skills are: Encouragement, Can Do, Choices, Self-Control, and Respecting Feelings. Participants will be able to practice their skills during the classes and reinforce the new techniques at home. 

The Parenting Skills Workshop Series is designed specifically for parents with young children up to age 12. The first session will be held at Cornell Cooperative Extension, 480 North Main Street, Canandaigua, NY 14424 and all of the other sessions will be done by Zoom.

This program is FREE and offered foremost to Ontario County parents working with the Ontario County Department of Social Services, Child Protective or Probation Departments and PINS petitions petitions. Other Ontario County resident registrations will be accepted, if space permits.
Note: Parents must attend seven of the first eight sessions to receive a Certificate of Completion.
