Starting on Jan. 16, YES Community Counseling Center will be conducting a six-week Active Parenting program for parents with elementary school age children at their offices, located at 152 Center Lane in Levittown, from 7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
If you were faced with the responsibility for designing and building a home, would you consult a builder? Before piloting a plane, would you want to take flying lessons? Would you seek medical training before attempting heart surgery?
If the answers seem obvious to you, consider this: Should your skills as a parent be learned only through “trial and error?”
All the love we have for our children does not automatically make us effective parents. Parenting, like any other skill, is something we learn, and learning “on the job” can be frustrating. As parents we become confused when, after constant repetition of the same theme, children still do not respond. “Active Parenting” is perhaps the most effective program ever offered in the “how to” of raising children.
The cost of the program is $60. If you are interested in attending please contact Angela Piccininni at YES Community Counseling Center, 516-799-3203. Registration is on a first come, first serve basis.

Golfer Annie Park, 19, of Levittown came close at the U.S. Women’s Amateur tourney, but missed the cut, finishing at 149, 9 strokes over par and just one stroke away from the match-play cut-off.
“I couldn’t make any putts, so then I had more pressure into my shots to get it closer,” Park said, “but obviously that’s not going to work.”
