Active Parenting Class schedule:
In order for teens and pre-teens to become successful adults, they need the support and assistance of their parents.  Active Parenting of Teens is a program for parents struggling to be that support for their children.

The program encourages parents to learn and use the skills they need to resolve family conflicts and reduce discipline problems.  Parents will learn ways to promote confidence and self-esteem in their youth, and to face those turbulent teenage years with positive results.
Frances Morreale has many years of experience teaching Dr. Michael H. Popkins' Active Parenting of Teens curriculum.  She has taught the class to countless numbers of parents since 1994, and provides the classes in Sebastian, Crawford, Logan, Scott and Polk Counties.  Frances possesses the ability to truly connect with participants, allowing her to accomplish the goal of instilling in them the skills needed to effectively parent their children during those often turbulent teen years.
