Parenting and Family Life Education

We offer more than 50 relevant topics on a wide range of topics in our parenting classes to help parents feel confident and successful in their role.  We are here at every stage of development, birth to teen, to assist parents in nurturing and guiding their children. We know parenting isn’t easy – this is why we offer classes at our offices, online, and in other community locations throughout the Metroplex. Online registrations are simple and fast. You may also call us, we’ll be glad to help.

Family Life Education classes are taught by trained, degreed, and experienced professionals. Our goal is to deliver quality, research-based instruction on effective, non-violent child-rearing practices, so that parents and caregivers can feel positive about their relationships with their children.



Need more individualized assistance? We offer private classes and parent coaching. With the help of our educator, parents or caregivers can select the topic that will help provide them with answers to some of the difficult aspects of parenting. Private classes are by appointment. Sometimes parents need assistance implementing the skills they have learned. Parent Coaching is designed to help refine skills so that they become tools for success. Parent Coaching is only available by appointment with a Family Life Educator.

We would like to bring the classes close to your families or place of work.  Our educators can present programs to clubs, churches, schools, businesses and other types of groups at a community location. To schedule a program or staff development training and find out about group class fees, please contact Kathryn Thalken at kthalken@theparentingcenter.org.
