Want to be a better parent? Are you tired of having to work so hard to get your children to calm down and behave? Are you concerned that they may not be developing the level of responsibility and self-control they'll need to lead happy and successful lives?

Parenting is an all-encompassing job that can come with all sorts of stressors. The responsibility of raising a child is a process that involves promoting and supporting the development of that child. Parenting is a fulfilling long-term investment. As parents, you must be prepared for the unexpected.

As a parent, you are a huge influence over your child's development. Therefore, it's extremely important for parents to remember that children come into this world with their own personalities and it's the parents' job to provide a crossing point with the world that in the long run prepares a child for complete independence.

How would you like to giggle for a couple of hours and walk away with the positive and practical skills you need to prepare your child for independence?

The Family Advocacy Program offers a class that can show you how to discipline children without losing their love and respect.

This six-session class meets weekly for five weeks, and focuses on helping children develop personal responsibility, self-control and good decision making skills.

Unlike some approaches we don't use complicated reward or punishment systems which only focus on short-term compliance. Instead, we focus on nurturing long-term relationships and reinforcing good character.

Please bring your lunch and join us in Becoming a Love and Logic Parent. The class will run on Tuesdays, Sept. 1, 8, 15, 22, and 29 from 11 am to 1 p.m. at the Health and Wellness Center Bldg. 827.

For details, or to register for the program, call 478-327-8398 or email Robins.fap@us.af.mil. Remember we can help you to make parenting fun and rewarding instead of chaotic.
