The Middle Peninsula-Northern Neck Community Services Board will be holding a 15-week educational series in Mathews County for parents and their children, ages 5-11. Classes begin Jan. 4, 2011 and end April 12.

The program is designed to increase family communication, cooperation, closeness and respect. Parents and children—meeting separately and together—learn to handle feelings, communicate needs, understand each other better, take charge of their own behaviors and emotions, feel good about themselves, enjoy each other and have fun. Practical, effective techniques are taught for handling challenging behavior and improving communication skills.

The series is open to the public free of charge. Classes will be held from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesdays at Thomas Hunter Middle School. Dinner will be provided each night during the course.
