Kate West Staff Writer The month of August brings the second and final series of Nurturing Parent classes for the year 2014. Plumas Rural Services is offering this eight-week series of classes in Chester, Greenville, Portola and Quincy. "The classes are closed , after the first class in the eight-week series so confidentiality is maintained. "In these classes, we find that parents learn as much from the curriculum as they do from each other and often relationships develop that create a support system after the class," program coordinator Leslie Wall said. The classes are open to everyone, whether a parent, grandparent, foster parent or CASA (court-appointed special advocate) volunteer. • They are available to the general public as well as those individuals who are court mandated to attend. Each week offers a different topic and discussion to the registered participants. Class topics by weekly sequence are: --Ages and stages of growth and development. --Understanding personality and birth order• --Communicating with respect• --Building self-worth and understanding feelings. --Drugs, alcohol and domestic violence issues. --Developing family morals, values and rules. --Praising behaviors: alternatives to spanking. --Positive ways to deal with stress and anger. "Parents who have attended these classes say they have a greater level of confidence and better awareness of their role in their child's life," Wall said. Chester Classes will begin Aug. 7 and end Sept. 25. Greenville Classes will begin Oct. 2 and end Nov. 20. Portola Classes will begin Sept. 30 and end Nov. 18. Quincy Classes will begin Aug. 5 and end Sept. 23. Class hours and locations Hours for all classes, in all communities, are 4 - 6 p.m. As a matter of confidentiality, class locations will be provided at the time of registration. For more information about the program, call Leslie Wail, 283-3611, ext. "818, or 258-4280 on Mondays and Fridays.
