If you’ve been assigned to Parenting Classes, make sure you attend every one. Show up early, bring a notebook and pen, read the material, do the homework. Participate in every discussion and ask questions. Most of all listen and understand what is being taught. It is valuable information. You are there to learn.
It would appear to most Social Workers that you need to learn to be a parent. Parenting doesn’t come naturally to everyone, therefore it would be wise to listen and ask questions. You won’t be condemned for asking questions. If you have a good instructor, you will be encouraged. Even parents who don’t have involvement with “the system” benefit from some sort of parenting class.
Again, there are no excuses for not attending. If you are deathly ill show up anyways and let the instructor decide if you are too sick to attend.
