CHENANGO COUNTY – Parents who find themselves butting heads with their teenager will have a chance to get some help through a new installment of the Parent Projet.
The sixth offering of Chenango County’s Parent Project will start Oct. 2. The 10-week course aims to empower parents to learn different tools and techniques to work better with their stong-willed kids.
Each class will be held on Thursdays, from 6-9 p.m. at the Chenango County Court facilities in the Eaton Center in Norwich. Classes are tuition-free, although space is limited and parents are encouraged to pre-register by Oct. 1.
“We have had some good successes with this program that help families be closer together,” said Karen Osborn, Chenango County Probation Director and facilitator of the Parent Project. “The concerns we talk about are universal and they happen in every demographic, regardless of income or anything else. This is a good opportunity for the area to get some help with their teen.”
