Parenting is a huge part of life. From the first time you hold your child, they take up a huge part of your life and your heart. Every parent wants to be the best parent they can be and give their child everything they need and want in life. At Mindsight Behavioral Group, we want to support all parents in making the best decisions for their families.
While parenting is often a wonderful and joyful experience, it can also be new and scary and difficult for parents, especially first-time parents. While the newness of the baby is amazing, it can also bring anxiety, questions, and postpartum depression. For these reasons, it's important to have a support system in place to help you conquer those crucial first few months.
In this interview, Carmellia Jackson, a social worker in our Lousiville office, discusses how parenting classes can lend support and provide skills to help you become a better parent.
Who are parenting classes for?
While there is some stigma surrounding what kind of parents go to parenting classes, those misconceptions couldn't be further from the truth.
Carmellia explains that many great parents seek parenting classes for a variety of reasons. Since every child is different, it can be helpful for parents to learn new ways to interact, play, and care for their children. Other parents simply want to continue learning so they feel equipped to handle any situation that may arise with their children.
In addition, any caregiver, co-parenting during a divorce or a brand new parent.
