Positive Parenting Program

Everyone can improve their parenting skills. Parenting classes can help you learn the basics and lessen the anxiety of being a parent, no matter your circumstances. The evidence-based parent and family training programs offered by Potomac Community Services is a fee-based teaching series assisting parents in our community to improve their parenting and communication skills. We offer sessions that address parenting skill development for parents and caregivers who have children from birth through young adulthood. Our facilitator provides classes for families, groups, and educators and has worked with Washington County Public Schools, Head Start of Washington County, Grace Academy, and the Department of Social Services Kinship Navigators.
