How Our Classes Work
We want to provide parents with maximally effective and efficient tools for parenting. We provide three convenient ways for parents to access our classes. Take the course:
- In the comfort of your own home over our webcasting program. To participate this way you will need a computer with a camera, internet, and a phone line (when using a cell phone the system works best when used with headphones.)
- At the nearest Youth Dynamics office and receive technical support from a trained professional
- In a traditional parenting class environment surrounded by peers (This option is not available in all areas at all times.)
All three formats are taught by a certified parenting professional
