NEWTON — To help parents gain the mindset and tools they need for raising healthy, well-adjusted children, the Sherrills Ford-Terrell Branch Library (9154 Sherrills Ford Road, Terrell) will begin hosting a free parenting series next week.
The seminars are offered by Triple P (the Positive Parenting Program) and the Catawba County Parent Support Team. They look at both the parent side and the child side of the equation, determining how the interactions can be made stronger and more trusting on both fronts.
• The Power of Positive Parenting class meets Monday, Feb. 11, at 6 p.m. It discusses ways to develop loving relationships with children through encouragement, attention, and good communication. It will also provide tips for managing common parenting challenges with positive approaches.
• The Raising Confident, Competent Children class meets Monday, Feb. 18, at 6 p.m. It is based on the premise that children are more likely to be confident, to succeed at school, and to get along well with others when they develop certain life skills. This session will teach parents how to help children build self-confidence and become capable adults.
• The Raising Resilient Children class meets Monday, Feb. 25, at 6 p.m. It places a premium on teaching parents how to help children deal with their emotions and their self-control. This seminar will focus on introducing children to techniques for bouncing back from day-to-day struggles or disappointments.
Registration is not required, and there is no charge to attend any of the sessions. For questions about the series, contact the library staff at 828-466-6827.
