Parent Trainings

Parenting is the toughest job in the world. That's why Family Service & Guidance Center offers a range of programs and presentations designed to make raising children and teens less stressful.


Real World Parenting Series

Parents are invited to free monthly presentations that provide practical information and real-world help for raising healthier, happier children and teens.

The Real-World Parenting Series is open to the public and presented at FSGC’s 327 S.W. Frazier facility unless otherwise noted. Seating is limited, so registration is required. Registration for each presentation opens about two weeks prior to the event and is completed through Eventbrite.com.

Sorry, but Real-World Parenting Presentations are parent-only events. Childcare is not provided.
