Why this course?
Most parents, no matter their background or socioeconomic standing, are somewhat frightened when they welcome their first child into the world. Learning to feed and care for an infant is one challenge you will face. Preparing your child to enter and thrive in school is another. Parenting classes can help parents learn more about what to expect in the coming years and prepare for each developmental stage. Since confident, decisive parents tend to raise confident, secure children, parenting classes can give you a much-needed skill set and help decrease your feelings of anxiety. Mastering the basics is well worth the time you might spend in class.
Recent research has shown that parental involvement is one of the most important factors in a student's academic achievement. From giving advice on the questions you should be asking your child, to sharing strategies on how to engage meaningfully with your kids' studies, parenting classes can help you learn ways to get more involved in your child's learning experience.
