Parenting Wisely

Parenting Wisely logoThe DCLS in cooperation with Holcomb Behavioral Health Systems and the Delaware County Office of Behavioral Health offers Parenting Wisely Young Children CD-ROM Kit to patrons.

Libraries now offer kits for parents of young children as well as parents of teens!

Parenting Wisely is a leading parenting program being rated a Model Program by the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention and an Exemplary Program by Family Strengthening, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. The kit offers parents skills that help in communicating and lowering children’s risk for problems. Seven typical problem situations are presented including: misbehaving at the grocery store, interrupting telephone conversations, problems getting along with friends, how to parent when stepparents or grandparents also live in the household, school and homework problems, sibling fighting, and how to get children off to bed and ready for school on time.

The kits will be available to all residents with a library card. Parents can check the kit out from their local library for use at home. When you take out the Parenting Wisely CD-ROM, be sure to read the information about free gift certificates.
