Free parenting class to be offered in Onalaska

Chris Peterson to teach 'Intro to: Parenting the Love and Logic Way'

Local parenting consultant and contributor to News 8’s “Parenting Today” segment will provide a free two hour parenting class in Onalaska.

Chris Peterson will teach “Intro to: Parenting the Love and Logic Way” on March 22 from 4-6 p.m. and on March 24 from 6-8 p.m.

Both sessions will be held in the community room at Irving Pertzsch Elementary, 524 Main Street in Onalaska. Participants can choose one to attend.

Peterson said people who attend the event will learn how to avoid unwinnable power-struggles and arguments; stay clam when kids do incredibly upsetting things; set enforceable limits; and avoid enabling and being empowering. The event is sponsored by Onalaska Elementary PTO/PTA.

To RSVP, email Peterson said childcare will be included at the site but you need to let him know when you RSVP so they can have adequate staff available.
