The other day I received a booklet in the mail from San Juan Unified School District advertising upcoming classes for adults. I was surprised to see parenting classes among the offerings. The family law court often orders parents to attend these types of classes after attending mediation. San Juan’s programs are convenient and affordable. Here’s a few that may be of interest:
This six week class is designed for families going through the divorce and/or mediation process and will meet court requirements. Birth parents should take this class separately. $35 per person. Orange Grove Adult School, Tuesdays 1-10 to 2-14 or Fair Oaks Preschool 4-18 to 5-23. Both will be held from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.
Parenting the Toddler
Attended by both parent and toddler together, this class provides active participation by all parents, provides growing and learning experiences for both adults and children. Age: 18 months to 3 years. $45 per month and $45 annual registration. Fair Oaks Elementary on Mon, Weds or Fri from 8:45 to 11:45.
A six week series — learn about alternatives to spanking, how to avoid nagging and power struggles. Use of time outs and logical consequences. $30 — Thursdays 3-2 to 4-6 from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. at Fair Oaks Annex.
Registration started on December 5th, so do not delay if you are interested. Parenting classes often fill up quick. For more information visit San Juan’s website. Many other classes are also available including many related to computers and business. I might even enroll in one myself.
