Raising a Thinking Child classes are here!

Do you want your child to succeed in school, make friends,

and treat others with respect?

“Raising a Thinking Child” helps you teach young children how tA family sitting on the couch cuddled together reading a book.o solve problems and resolve daily conflicts. Richland County families have found this program improves communication in the entire family, resulting in “less yelling” and “happier” families. The program will also help shy children to become more assertive and impulsive children to cope with frustration when things don’t go their way. The skills children learn through this program can prevent and reduce early behaviors that predict later problems, “bigger kid” problems in adolescence.

“Raising a Thinking Child” offers special dialogues, games, and activities to respond to children’s problems in a new way—a way that will produce mentally healthy, self-confident, and socially responsible children!
