Description: These classes are starting this week in four different locations around Douglas County. The curriculum will zero in on teaching parents how to create positive parent-child interactions and model expected behaviors for their children. Instructors will also provide an overview of normal child development and effective disciplinary strategies.

Roseburg High School classes will be geared toward meeting the needs of teen parents.

Classes are made possible by the Douglas County Early Childhood Planning Coalition, a broad collaborative effort by members of local agencies and organizations aimed at strengthening families through parent education. Here is a rundown of each class by location:

  • Eastwood Elementary Library in Roseburg – Wednesdays, 6 PM to 8 PM from September 14th through November 16th.
