Parenting Workshops

Parenting is Hard Work!

Managing schedules, balancing work and family, coping with new stages and behaviors…. All of this can be exhausting and challenging. Most parents sincerely want to do their best, but it can be confusing with all of the competing messages out there. And who has time to read every book or website?

We can help! The Family Development Team at CCE Tioga is here to provide you with accurate & current research based parenting information. Parenting workshops are facilitated by credentialed parenting educators.  These workshops are educational in nature and are designed for universal audiences.  They are not intended to substitute for therapeutic, clinical or intervention services for families experiencing extreme circumstances.
