Parenting Classes

Parenting the Love & Logic Way® classes provides practical tools and techniques that help adults achieve respectful, healthy relationships with their children and help them prepare their kids for the real world. This parenting program is designed to give parents practical skills that can be used immediately, such as strategies for:

  • Putting an end to arguing, back talk and begging

  • Teaching responsibility

  • Setting limits

  • Avoiding power struggles

  • Guiding kids to own and solve their problems

  • Teaching kids to complete chores without reminders and without pay

A workbook will be provided to each parent participating in the Parenting the Love & Logic Way® class. Participants are expected to attend all sessions and practice the skills they are learning.

Family Enrichment Services is a project of Adoption Related Services of Pinellas, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
