Parenting Programs

in Peterborough, NH and throughout the Eastern Monadnock Region

**All of our parenting groups are currently online via Zoom. They are all free while they are virtual.

 

Are you struggling with relating to your teen? Unsure how to become the parent you’ve always thought you could be? Our parenting groups and programs offer a collaborative and welcoming environment where you can both be heard and learn the skills you’re looking for from other parents and our expert parent educators. Depending on the program, you may meet weekly throughout the school year or it may be a single event, sometimes morphing into a weekly group.

Making Our Programs Accessible to All

In addition to our on-site parenting groups held at The River Center in Peterborough, we also hold programs in other towns of the Eastern Monadnock region such as Jaffrey and New Ipswich. We want our programs to be accessible to all. Living in the Monadnock area, we know that transportation can be a barrier to many.

Parenting Topics

Our parenting programs cover a variety of topics from setting limits with your toddlers to developing and maintaining a relationship of connection with your teens as they become emerging adults. These topics have covered a wide range including the following:

  • Parent Sharing & Support Groups
  • Teenage Development
  • Grandparents Parenting Grandchildren
  • Drug & Alcohol Prevention
  • Stress & Anxiety in Kids
  • Positive Discipline
  • Screentime Use

Some of the programs we have used and continue to offer include:

  • Effective Parenting Workshop
  • Systematic Training for Effective Parenting
  • Guiding Good Choices
  • When Your Kids Push Your Buttons
  • Tuesday Topics
  • and more!

*** CLASS IS FULL. EMAIL US IF YOU WANT TO BE ON THE WAITLIST ***

This is a support and learning group for parents of children going through the developmental shift between the tween years and the teen years. This is a critically important time for parents who also must allow a developmental shift in themselves. Parents must grow with their children and shift their expectations in order to meet the new needs and demands of the teen years.

This group meets bi-weekly via Zoom and is free while virtual. Bonnie Harris is the parent educator leading the program.

The group is for Monadnock area families with children ages 10-14 years old, Out-of-state participants should email info@rivercenter.us for more information.

Register only for the first date you will attend.
