“Active Parenting Now” provides the steppingstone to successful parenting. Prepare now for the approaching teen years. It’s the acclaimed video and discussion program formulated by parenting expert Dr. Michael Popkin.

Maybe your son dawdles whenever it’s time to get dressed for school. Learn to deal with difficult problems of drugs, violence, and sex – or maybe your daughter is beginning to use disrespectful language. Learn to use non-violent, disciplinary techniques that work. Raise responsible, cooperative children who resist negative peer pressure.

The workshop targets parents of children ages 5 to 12. Child care will be provided for ages 5-11.

The doors open at 5:45 p.m. Registration is required so contact Jackson-Smith at 386-437-7526, ext. 2104, or email her at jackson-smithp@flaglerschools.com.
