Record Observer - - Community -

CEN­TRE­VILLE — Did your fam­ily not come with a guide on how things are sup­posed to work? The Queen Anne’s County De­part­ment of So­cial Ser­vices will of­fer the Fam­ily Nur­tur­ing pro­gram for Queen Anne’s County fam­i­lies. Thurs­day evenings, be­gin­ning March 16, the group will meet 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at St. Paul’s Epis­co­pal Church, 301 S. Lib­erty St. in Cen­tre­ville. Par­ents and chil­dren ages birth to 12 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 and in­cen­tives.

For more in­for­ma­tion or to sign up, con­tact Jone Tay­lor at 410-758-8026 by March 15. Space is lim­ited.
