Project Child is in a transition phase beginning April 5th.
There are no parenting classes scheduled at this time.
Thank you to all who have been involved in Project Child; as a committee member, as a runner in our Tortoise & Hare 5K Race, as someone who has attended one of our symposiums or conferences, or as a donor. I appreciate all of the support that you have given Project Child.
Quotes from parents in our parenting class:
“I love learning about how to control my anger first, and then my child’s"
“The best part of the class was meeting everyone, hearing and expressing each of our stories, concerns, etc. Knowing as parents we fall short / that doesn’t make us bad or even the worse parent, instead it shows that we all need help, we need to sometimes reach out and ask, and it is OK to ask.”
