The Sippican Elementary School in Marion is sponsoring a program designed to assist parents to become more knowledgeable in effective child rearing.
The four group sessions will focus on understanding the stages of development, the effective and ineffective methods of discipline, and a review of the different philosophies of parenting.
The presenter, Jim Fitzpatrick, LICSW, will share his 40 years of experiences working with parents and children in a child guidance clinic and as a School Social Worker at the elementary and secondary levels.
Meetings will be held at Sippican Elementary School on November 5, 12, 19, and 26 from 7:00 to 8:30 pm. Parents from other schools and towns are welcome. The fee is $25; all proceeds will benefit the Sippican VASE program. To register, please call 508-748-0100; enrollment is limited.
