The City of Carlsbad Police Department will be sponsoring a training course for parents with hard-to-handle children ages five to ten.
The class is facilitated by the police department’s “GUIDE” program. GUIDE is a unique prevention program that educates young people on self-esteem, positive decision-making, and the dangers of substance abuse and gang involvement.
“This parenting course is designed for parents facing the challenges of strong-willed and/or out of control children,” explains GUIDE Program Director Penny Velazquez. “The Loving Solutions course has special solutions for the parents of children with Attention Deficit Disorders, and the curriculum addresses both current problems and the future challenges of raising children.”
The Loving Solutions classes run seven consecutive Thursdays, beginning Feb. 28 and are during the day from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The classes are held at the Harding Community Center, 3096 Harding St. in Carlsbad. The cost of the classes is $25 per person or $35 per couple. The classes are free for active military personnel. Pre-registration is recommended.
