Attend this class with your teen to foster healthy relationships and open discussion of dating challenges in a safe and respectful environment. Teens face many challenges today, from drinking, drug use, negative peer pressure and sexual transmitted infections to ensuring safe use of technology and social media. Research shows that the more parents are involved in discussing these issues directly with their teens, the better the outcome will be.
During this one night class, you’ll learn all of the basics and “how tos” of caring for your newborn. We’ll cover comforting, diapering, bathing, feeding, cord care, and sleeping.
