Parenting is the most important and difficult job in the world, and yet it is the job that we are least prepared for. There is not “diploma” in how to be a great mom or dad! For parents wanting to learn more about positive parenting skills and strategies, Brightpaths offers parenting classes and information to groups or individuals.
Classes are generally one night per week for six to ten weeks and offered in various locations. Currently, there is no “set” schedule for classes. Brightpaths chooses dates, times, and locations when enough people to make a class sign up. If you are interested in an upcoming parenting class, please call Lynn Dixson at (706) 546-9713 (ext. 217) or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org

Dads are important and bring something different to a child’s development. Our fatherhood groups are for dads only to share ideas and support each other. One of our dads wanted a place for just dads to connect and could not find anything in the area. Our fatherhood groups are virtual so it’s easy to join from the comfort of your couch. Fatherhood groups in Spanish are coming soon. Check back for more details.
Meeting Times: Thursday nights 2/18 – 3/11 | registration required
