Parent Education

Parent education is an essential part of the ranch experience. While children enjoy activities at the ranch, parents will attend love-based, trauma-informed parenting classes. They will also have plenty of free time to go home or go on vacation and rejuvenate themselves!

 

Here is what parents are saying about these classes:

 

“By far the best I have experienced.”

 

“It was nice to hear it from someone who has been through it. It gives you a better idea of how to handle things. I am glad to have come.”

 

“Wonderful, personal examples, very warm presentation; I enjoyed. Great thought process for me and wonderful ideas!”

Online Parenting Classes

Thursdays
7:00-8:00 PM CST
Classes are open to all interested caregivers; not only those whose children are guests at the respite ranch.

Classes will be held via Zoom with 30 minutes of instruction and 30 minutes of Q&A.
