Nurturing Program starts Sept. 15
SUDLERSVILLE — You want to enjoy your kids. You want to enjoy being a parent. Somewhere along the line, those two goals got lost in the everyday routine and enjoyment was replaced with anger, impatience and frustration. Communication issues with the kids and your partner have become the norm. Do not fear, help is here.
The Queen Anne’s County Department of Social Services will offer the Family Nurturing Program for Queen Anne’s County families meeting on Thursday evenings, beginning Sept. 15. Parents and children ages birth to 13 are invited to attend this free program.
The six-week program is designed to increase family communication, cooperation, closeness and respect. Parents and children will meet separately and together to learn how to handle feelings, communicate needs, understand each other better, take charge of their own behavior, feel good about themselves, enjoy each other and have fun. Practical, effective techniques are taught for handling challenging behavior and conflicts.
The group takes place in a supportive and confidential atmosphere. The program includes a light family meal, incentives and is free of charge. The Family Nurturing Program will be held on Thursday evenings from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at The Family Center, 103 North Linden St. in Sudlersville, beginning Sept. 15.
For more information or to sign up, contact Jone Taylor at 410-758-8026 by Sept. 13. Space is limited.
