The class time is from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Southwest Clinic, 4211 Parkway Place SW, Suite 100, Grandville, Michigan, 49418. It will be facilitated by William J. Rowell and Brett VanTol, both licensed psychologists.
Classes are for parents of children six to sixteen years who want to learn how to raise respectful, responsible children. Cost is $90 for the series of classes. One or both parents may attend. In addition, there will be an $18 cost for the Transforming the Difficult Child workbook.
Parenting may be the most difficult, but potentially most rewarding challenge a person will have. Often, our own parenting experiences may not prepare us to be the kind of parent we wish to be.
Emphasizing the successes every child has and minimizing the energy given to their mistakes (negative behaviors) allows parents and others who deal with children to transform the child. Parents also find this approach transforms them from negative, rule-setting, frustrated authority figures to generous and supportive parents.
