Nur­tur­ing Pro­gram starts Sept. 15

Record Observer - - Community -

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.
