Where Can People Find Parenting Classes?

Your child's pediatrician should be a resource for local parenting classes. Many local hospitals provide free or low-cost programs as part of their outreach to the local community. Check with the local children's hospital for resources it may offer. Contact your medical insurance company and inquire regarding contracted individuals (often marriage and family therapists) who are in your community. If you have a religious affiliation, check with the local clergy regarding any suggestions they might offer. Whatever you do, don't view the need for guidance as a personal weakness or evidence of failed parenting. Often all that is necessary is a new perspective and approach.
