Peaceful Practical Parenting Class with Maris Rose This is tonight and Feb. 22 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. In an atmosphere of warmth, humor, and understanding, parents will learn techniques (and the concepts behind their effectiveness) to bring peace, connection, simplicity, and respectful cooperation to family life. The first class focuses on building a strong foundation/connection with children. The second class focuses on sharing the results of practicing the tools discussed in the first class then addresses some trickier, more difficult behaviors.

It is most beneficial to attend both evenings as the second class builds upon the first. However, parents will find the material helpful even if they can only attend one evening.

Classes are free, but donations are encouraged. Space is limited so please contact the library to register: or 482-2878.
