These parenting classes will help you feel more confident as you move through the stages of parenting from baby to toddler to school age and teen children. Practical Parent Education was developed in Plano TX as a way to help parents learn how to handle different stages of their parenting journey. It has grown to be a nationally recognized parenting curriculum and we are happy to bring it to Wilmington parents.
Classes are on Monday, January 23 6PM at our new location in Elevate Coworking at 2512 Independence Blvd, Suite 100. Come meet, Dustin Smith, our certified educator who will be coordinating and teaching these classes. Dustin is a single dad of a 10 year old son who just happens to be my grandson! I am excited to be coteaching these classes with Dustin.
