The Child Center is presenting a series of four classes for parents on collaborative problem solving. Collaborative problem solving is an exciting model that teaches you and your child skills that will reduce meltdowns, increase positive relationships, and improve communications.
Parents with a child in elementary or middle school will find the strategies used in collaborative problem solving useful and effective. If you are struggling with your child’s challenging behaviors or are frustrated and searching for a more effective way to manage your child’s behavior, then collaborative problem solving could be the solution you are looking for.
The classes will be held at Elmira Elementary School from 6:00pm to 7:30pm starting on Thursday, October 25th. Dinner will be served and childcare provided during the class. This class is offered at no cost to families.
Please call 541-726-1465 to register – space is limited!

Recently, a young Fern Ridge student received an inappropriate/explicit text message on her cell phone. This is a good reminder to discuss safety with your children in regards to technology. The link below is to a story that aired last night on KEZI regarding this incident.
