One-day parenting seminar in Westmoreland County
Founded in 2006, Dads Matter, a department of the Private Industry Council of Westmoreland/Fayette Inc., touches the lives of thousands of kids in Westmoreland and Fayette Counties by equipping hundreds of parents and caregivers with the confidence and skills to make a greater impact in their children’s lives.
On Saturday, August 27, 2011 Dad’s Matter is hosting a free informational Saturday Seminar workshop at the Four Points Sheraton in Greensburg, PA from 10 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. According to Ryan Butter, fatherhood supervisor with the Private Industry Council this workshop is the third in a series of seminars that has been offered this year. He finds that “the topics of custody and discipline are the two biggest issues where parents struggle. Running a close third would be family finances.” The upcoming seminar looks to address these issues and many more. Don’t let the name Dad’s Matter deceive you, as anyone, male or female, who is playing a parental role in a child’s life is welcome to register.
Seminar topics include:
- Child custody/support advice presented by Attorney Debra L. Henry
- Getting a better job presented by Sandy Allen of Dads Matter
- Defeating debt presented by Seth Caton of Dads Matter
- Child discipline that works presented by Mark LeVan of Dads Matter
- Parental stress and anger presented by ParentWise
