Fairfield police to host Parent Project classes

By From page A3 | May 05, 2013

FAIRFIELD — The Fairfield Police Department is hosting a series of Parent Project classes starting July 11.

The Parent Project educates parents on behavioral intervention techniques such as how to effectively communicate with their children; provide structure and active supervision; identify and intervene with drug or alcohol use; improve school attendance; and how to identify gang involvement or other similar behavior.

The classes will be taught by Fairfield Police Department personnel and non-law enforcement professionals.

Classes will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. and begin July 11, Aug. 13 and Sept. 19. A Spanish-speaking class begins Aug. 26. The location is to be determined. Each session lasts 10 weeks.

To register for a Parent Project course or for more information, contact Parent Project coordinator Jeff Conner at 428-7673 or [email protected] For information about the Spanish course, contact Patricia Magallon at 428-7327 or [email protected]

    Good idea, but I think parenting classes should start before a child is born. Prevention is easier than intervention.
