This organization provides parent training for children age 0 to 12 yrs old. Every parent should participate in these classes, maybe more than once. My husband and I attended "Childbirth classes" which mostly focused on the birthing experience. Which only lasts one to 6 yours and it is mostly out of your control anyway. The Dr. and nurses are in control. After our baby was born, we were like now what !! She won't stop crying, what is wrong. We should have been taking parenting classes, which teach you how to raise a strong, independent, self-assured, calm child. EVERY parent should be taking these classes, every grandparent, aunts, uncles, babysitters, and teachers should also take these classes. The classes that I participated in made me realize why I had experienced some of the problems that I did, when I was young. I want to start teaching these classes so that I can help others live a more meaningful life. A life that they can flow through easily without repeated complications with others and with authority figures. I have also worked the Help-Line at Family Outreach. We provide information to people in the community about various resources that are available; wheter it is homework help, food, clothing, shelter, etc. We are the one stop shop for providing lots of information to people in the community.
