Registration is now open to all area parents interested in the Northwest Suburban High School District 214's winter lecture and discussion series, "What Every Parent Needs to Know." The four-part course will take place from 7 to 9 p.m. on Feb. 11, 18, 25, and March 4 at John Hersey High School, 1900 E. Thomas St. in Arlington Heights.

The lecture and discussion series will help parents anticipate and prevent problems proactively, develop mutually respectful relationships, explore fair discipline, maintain effective communication, and use productive problem-solving methods with their children.

Bob Leece, student assistance coordinator at Buffalo Grove High School, and Martha Messer, retired school nurse from John Hersey High School, have trained thousands of parents over the past 15 years.

The registration fee is $15 per person and is due at the first class. Cash or check payable to Hersey High School is acceptable. Registration is limited to 100 parents. The course can fill up quickly. To register, contact Paula Volpe at
