Summer Active Parenting Groups For Parents
Parenting, like any other skill, is something that is learned and learning “on the job” can be frustrating. “Active Parenting” is perhaps the most effective program ever offered in the “how to” of raising children. YES Community Counseling Center will be conducting two programs this summer. Active Parenting of Elementary School-Aged Children (ages 5-11) begins at 7 p.m. at the Levittown office. Each program runs for six weeks and the cost of the programs is $75 per family. Contact Kathleen Coletta at YES Community Counseling Center, 516-799-3203 to register or answer questions.
