FREE Classes to Help You Provide a Safe, Healthy Home for Children

act-adults-and-children-together-against-violence-logo-resizedThe statistics are startling. According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, an average of 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States. Millions of women and children live in violent homes.

Domestic violence does not always manifest as physical abuse. Emotional and psychological abuse can often be just as damaging as physical violence. In any case, the danger is real.

Children learn by observing and imitating what they see. That’s why it’s hard to break the cycle of domestic violence and it continues generation after generation.

STAMP (Skills to Acquire Mastery of Parenting) can help.

This hands-on, participatory course, developed by ACT, thoughtfully teaches parents and guardians how to:

  • Use positive discipline, anger management, conflict resolution skills
  • Teach children to manage their emotions and anger in a healthy way
  • Recognize negative and positive influences children outside the home
  • Learn about different parenting styles and which works best for you and each individual child
  • Make friends with other parents and connect with community resources
  • Raise safe, healthy happy children and protect them from violence

STAMP classes begin Wednesday, January 18, 2017 at the Alliance for Children and Families offices at 624 Scranton Avenue, Alliance, OH 44601.
