APNlogo_LoRes

The Short Answer? Because you are raising a child.

Still Want More? Here are 6 other reasons to take a parenting class

  1. “Parenting is the most important, and the most difficult, job we will ever have, and that part of tackling any job we consider important and difficult is getting the training and support needed to do the best we can.” -Dr. Michael Popkin. Parenting is hard! Why not take advantage of all the help and support available?

  2. Children don’t come with users manuals, and we aren’t born with parenting skills! Many of the skills we learn come from our own parents. Even if we turned out great (I mean, I did, right?!) doesn’t mean that there aren’t even better methods.

  3. You want to communicate better with your child. Whether your child is 5 or 15, communication is so important. Being able to communicate well and effectively will often prevent behavioral problems from happening in the first place.

  4. You want to learn how to handle behavioral problems. “In the early ’50s the four biggest problems facing schools were talking in class, chewing gum, running in the halls and making noise. In the ’90s these have been eclipsed by drug abuse, alcohol abuse, teen pregnancy and suicide. These problems, along with the dramatic shift in family status and security, make the job of effective parenting more difficult than ever before.” Even more reason to take advantage of proven parenting techniques and tools.

  5. Become a more confident parent. Not only will you learn parenting skills, but gain support from other parents.
