Parent Education

 

Education:
Prevention begins at home. Full Circle offers a range of services to support families in Leadville including:

Parenting Classes (DARE to be You, Active Parenting of Teens, and Strengthening Latino Families)

Workshops on Anger, Communication, Stress, and Discipline

Parents show improved parenting skills and decreased stress after completing these classes. Call Jill at 719-486-2400 or email her at admin@fullcircleleadville.org to find out when the next Parenting Class begins.

Opportunities:

Parents and children come together for positive fun family activities throughout the year. Field trips to Denver cultural events, pot luck dinners, community service activities, and summertime fun, all support positive family functioning. Families learn from each other and create strong support networks for the important job of raising healthy children.

Empowerment Group:
Acculturating mothers meet every Thursday to learn and share experiences they face as they try to improve their family lives. Mothers learn new skills, such as embroidery and sewing, which increases their self-esteem in many areas of life. Within the Empowerment Group, women offer each other support and community speakers share expertise on domestic violence, health, education, and community integration issues. Call Karla at 719-486-2400, ext 14 or email her at karla@fullcircleleadville.org if you’d like more information about the Women’s Empowerment Group.
