Parenting Classes?

Postby syke930 on Mon Mar 05, 2012 2:29 pm

Are there any parenting classes or groups in Victoria? Specifically I'm looking for support and techniques for preschoolers/kindergarteners with problems with attention, impulsivity, obeying teacher/parents, hyperactivity, etc. I hesitate to use the term ADHD because my son is not diagnosed and he's just 4... but he definitely has more trouble in some of those areas than the other kids in his preschool class. I'd like to learn some techniques or tricks to help him focus, listen, "fall in line" in class, etc. so that he is prepared for kindergarten this fall.

I forgot to mention in my post above, that you may wish to post your inquiry in the Special Families Special Friends Forum of KIV as there is a lot of great support and info in that forum, including resources that may be helpful.

Barry MacDonald has great information on parenting boys. I went to his seminar last year when he was in Victoria and it really helped me understand my boys a lot better.

This is his website: www.mentoringboys.com
