    Parenting 2.0: Surviving the Teen Years
    LACASA Offers New Program for Parents of Teens
     
    An all new parenting education series, “Parenting 2.0: Surviving the Teen Years” starts March 19, 2019 at LACASA Center.
    The eight-week course, designed specifically for parents of tweens and teens, focuses on overcoming parenting challenges and building positive relationships.
    During the program, parents of children ages 11-17 will join discussions and be educated on skills relevant to parenting this particular age group.
    Course topics include: teen development, parenting styles, negotiation skills, setting limits and rules, respect vs. fear, and values and traditions.
    In addition to “Nurturing Parenting” and “Fathers Only”, this is the third parenting course provided by LACASA during the winter season. All LACASA parenting classes are sponsored by the Kellogg Family Foundation. The program was added due to an expressed interest from parents.
    “Parents have been reaching out to us and asking for a class that would help them navigate the difficult teen years,” said LACASA Parenting Educator Jan Lobur. “We created a unique series and we are eager to launch it this March.”
    Parenting 2.0 will be held on Tuesdays from 6 – 8 p.m. and runs through May 7, 2019. Participants who complete the series receive a certificate.
    The cost of the program is $75 for one parent or $100 for both parents, and covers all class materials and light snacks. Some scholarships are available. The class is for parents only.

    All LACASA parenting programs are held at LACASA Center, 2895 W. Grand River Ave., in Howell.
    Advance registration is required and space is limited to 20 parents. For more information, visit lacasacenter.org. To register, contact Jan Lobur at 517-548-1350 or email parenting@lacasacenter.org.
