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.
