Submitted by Geneva Unit District 304

Parents are invited to sign up for an updated version of "Parent to Parent 2000/Lessons Learned," a series of parenting workshops created by Bill Oliver.

Geneva Unit District 304 will host this series to give parents advice and guidance on raising children in the 21st century.

The 2012-13 classes, the first of which begins Oct. 25, each contain four sessions that will provide parents with direction and guidance in their battle against the "toxic culture" in which they are forced to raise their children today.

The program covers such topics as recognizing the signs and symptoms of an unhealthy child, the battle against teen drinking and drug use, the dangers of the Internet, and identifying the common traps parents fall into with children, among others. Over half of the class time will be spent discussing these issues with other parents and sharing experiences.

Class I will be from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursdays, Oct. 25 to Nov. 15.

Class II will be from 7 to 9:15 p.m. Thursdays, Jan. 28 to Feb. 25, except for Feb. 18.

All sessions will be in the first-floor conference room at the district administrative offices, 227 N. Fourth St. All sessions are free, and all parents from throughout Kane County are invited to participate.

To sign up or for more information, contact Community Intervention Coordinator Chic Williams at (630) 463-3083 or Linda Williams at (630) 463-3084. Leave your name and phone number.
