Confident Parenting helps parents learn ways to support their child’s development while also providing the social and emotional tools necessary for success in school and life. The library partners with outside groups to provide research-based strategies and practices that will help parents interact with their children throughout the day.

Most applicable for families with children ages 2 - 5 years and both parents are encouraged to attend for best results. Registration required.
