Join us for an eight session parent education program presented by the Family Health and Wellness Program of Cornell Cooperative Extension. Learn new, positive skills that will replace ineffective behaviors and parenting practices. Each session is designed with hands-on activities so that participants have the opportunity to practice these skills. All sessions will be held at the Extension Education Center located at 423 Griffing Avenue, Riverhead, NY 11901 and will run Monday evenings from 6:30 – 8:30p.m.
