Online Parenting Classes

If you are mandated to complete a parenting class, verify approval of an online class (rather than a traditional class) with the  mandating agency. Each state, county, and individual judge may dictate different requirements. If you are court ordered to take a co-parenting class, it is always best to check with your county court of record to verify their acceptance of an online parenting class. 
Each state, county, and individual judge may dictate different requirements. 

Enjoy the opportunity to complete a parenting course at your leisure – anytime, day or night!
Certificates of Completion are provided after the class is finished.

The eight-class series will focus on identifying challenging behaviors in both infants & children and how you can effectively parent children with behavioral issues. Parents may start attending at any point in the 6-session series; attendance does not need to start with Session #1. Classes will focus on: nurturing a strong bond between you & your infant, how to comfort a low-threshold infant, helping your school-age child succeed, and effective & positive discipline.
