Strengthening families programming to be offered through Feb.20
Do you have a child age 10-14? Are you or your youth feeling misunderstood and/or disrespected at times? Have you wondered about whether they are making good choices when you are not around? Do you find yourself wondering what you could do differently as a parent?
The Mindfulness-Enhanced Strengthening Families Program is for parents and their youth ages 10-14 and is proven to increase positive family relationships and lower rates of alcohol, tobacco and marijuana use in youth throughout their high school years. It runs seven Thursday nights from January 9 – February 20 at the Lincoln County Service Center at 801 N Sales Street in Merrill. Register now by calling Debbie Moellendorf at 715-539-1077 or by visiting the online registration page here: http://bit.ly/34wQGsY. All families are invited, including single-parent, two-parent, foster, adopted, blended, step-parents or grandparents, etc.
This high-quality program is designed for families who want to do as well as possible during the tough transition years from childhood, to older teen, and beyond. At the program, your family will:
• enjoy learning more about each other
• practice positive communication and coping skills
• discuss setting and keeping healthy rules
• manage stress and conflict
• learn useful, tested tools for supporting each other
Parents who did this program before reported that relationships with their children improved and their children cooperated better, among other things! Youth have said how much they appreciate the time spent with their parents, and the amazing things they learned
