Parenting is hard. Period. No matter the age of your child, or how many years of experience you have under your belt, parenting is the biggest job out there — and sometimes it helps to have a friend in your corner.
The Canyons Family Center aims to be just that. Located at Mt. Jordan Middle School, the Center is a free resource for all Canyons District families. Its licensed therapists offer a variety of parenting workshops and student support groups, ranging from classes on how to cope with ADHD, anxiety, and peer pressure to building self-esteem.
“We know parents are their child’s first and most important teacher. We also know that being a parent can sometimes be lonely,” said Canyons Prevention Specialist Kelly Redican. “We envision the Family Center as a place where families come together to discover genuine avenues to assist each other, connect with each other, and learn from each other.”
Registration is open now for the Family Center’s fall lineup of classes. The Center also offers counseling and can refer families to private mental health providers for additional services.
