A new class from local parenting instructor and counselor Beth Bellamy will focus on helping parents remain calm. The class is called “Keep Your Cool: Be the Person in Charge Kids Need."
“In all my years of doing parenting work, I’ve come to believe that managing our emotional responses to our children’s behavior is the primary skill parents need to develop. So much rides on it," said Bellamy in an email.
The class will discuss how parents can remain focused and train themselves to remain calm while dealing with the stressful challenges of parenting. Parents will learn how their anger becomes triggered and what to do about it.
The class will be from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Monday and March 18 at Ponderosa Elementary School in Bend. Those interested must register by 5 p.m. today through Bend Park & Recreation, either in person or via the website www.bendparksandrec.org.
Cost is $50 for in-district residents for $68 out-of-district residents.
