Parent workshop

FARMINGTON – The University of Maine Cooperative Extension will offer a workshop on “Effective Discipline” from 9:30 a.m to noon on Tuesday, April 26, at the Farmington town office. The workshop is free and open to the public, but registrations need to be made by April 22.

Effective discipline reduces problem behaviors. It teaches children self-responsibility, maintains self-esteem and strengthens the parent-child relationship.

“Effective disciplinarians gradually work themselves out of a job,” said Wendy Legg Pollock, Extension educator and leader of the workshop. “Children then learn what appropriate behavior is expected of them and become self-disciplined. Learning and using tools of effective discipline will greatly reduce the battles in any family.”

For more information or to register, call the Franklin County Cooperative Extension Office at 1-800-287-1478.
