PRICE Parenting Seminar to begin Jan. 11th in Atlantic


January 8th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

Cass County Mental Health/General Relief Coordinator Teresa Kanning announced during today’s (Wednesday’s) Board of Supervisor’s meeting, that four Board-sponsored PRICE Parenting/Caregiver sessions would be held in Atlantic, beginning on January 11th.

On Nov. 27th, 2013, the Board took under advisement, a request from facilitator Elizabeth Tobak, for $1,400 in funding for a continuation of her “I Care About Kids” PRICE Parenting classes. Tobak has presented the classes for several years, but none has been held for the past four-years, due to a lack of interest, but interest has recently been renewed in the classes, which teach the basics of positive parenting to new parents.  PRICE stands for Positivity, Responsibility, Influence, Consequences and Encouragement.

The seminar Tobak teaches is set to take place January 11th, 18th and 25th, and again on February 8th. Persons attending all four classes at the United Church of Christ in Atlantic, will receive a five-dollar gift card from the Atlantic Fareway store. The seminar and child care are provided at no cost, and eight credit-hours are available for Family Child Care providers as well as Child Care staff.
