Another session of “ACT: Raising Safe Kids” will begin January 24 at Children’s Resource Center (1045 Klotz Road, Bowling Green.) The free course teaches parents with young children positive forms of discipline and how to deal with tantrums and fights. Endorsed by the American Psychological Association, ACT: Raising Safe Kids, has been taught all over the country. It has become so popular in Wood County that CRC offers it year-round. The class will meet every Tuesday from 5:30-7:30 PM from January 24 to March 14. Child care and a family meal are provided during each session. To register for the class, contact Kristen Junga or Pam McKinley at Children’s Resource Center, 419-352-7588.
Most adults– whether consciously or not—fall back on their parents’ child-rearing style when raising their own children. But that may not be the best choice for their kids. ACT (Adults and Children Together:) Raising Safe Kids helps moms and dads find alternatives to the parenting style they have “inherited” from their parents. An independent study performed by the U.S. Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention found that graduates of the course used less harsh discipline and benefited from the support of their classmates in the course. “ACT: Raising Safe Kids” recognizes that children live what they learn. It is never too early to learn peaceful ways to resolve conflicts.
