Nooksack Way of Life Program offers Positive Indian Parenting Classes
The Nooksack Way of Life Program will be hosting a series of Positive Indian Parenting classes on Wednesdays from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. from Oct. 1 to Nov. 26 and we hope our Nooksack families will attend. These classes will draw on the strengths of traditional child-rearing practices and will include dinner, humor, lessons from nature and Elder knowledge and story telling, to blend old values with modern parenting. Please call (360) 966-7704 to register or get more information. Here’s to Positive Indian Parenting!
