ReGen Next -  Making healthy relationships the priority.



Classes & Workshops for Parents

...because a parent is a child's first teacher and a teen's primary influence.

As parents, we can all use a little help when navigating through the noise of a world that offers many confusing and conflicting messages. Our classes and workshops help parents to turn down the volume on messaging that can negatively impact the physical, emotional, social, spiritual and intellectual health of our homes. Our presenters are experienced educators who believe that children and youth need parents and caregivers who are empowered with the knowledge and fortitude that it takes to recognize and to change unhealthy thinking and behaviors.

Contact us for more information about Parenting For Life (PFL) classes or to schedule a Turn Down The Volume (TDTV) workshop.  In-person and virtual sessions are available.

Great Parenting (Parts I & II)

A mutual, positive, long-lasting, emotional bond between parent and child through each stage of development is a protective factor throughout a child’s lifetime. High levels of parent-child connectedness produce security, hope and resiliency in children, from infancy through adolescence. In Great Parenting (Parts I/II), participants will explore various parenting styles and their consequences, the effects of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), ways to show love, and the three components of effective parenting.
