Family Class to be Offered in Le Mars
(LE MARS) -- Parenting a teenager is no easy task. The ISU Extension Office in Plymouth
County recognizes this fact and is providing a program to aid parents and pre-teens.
Carol Schneider, of ISU Extension, tells us about the class that begins September 19th
in Le Mars. She says the Strenghthening Families Class may be familiar to those from
Schneider and Family Life Specialist Laurie Hayunges (He-youngs), from the Sioux County
Extension Office, will be putting on the class intended for parents and their 5th or 6th
graders. Why 5th and 6th graders? Schneider says that's when the struggle for kids may
become too much to handle at school.
The class runs for seven weeks in two hour sessions. Schneider says it's a big
commitment, but well worth the time.
Class starts at 6:15pm and lasts until 8:15pm- a light meal will be served at 5:45
before class each night. Meeting nights are Mondays from September 19th through
October 31st. The cost is $10 per family for all weeks, with registration going on now.
The Strenghthenging Families Class offered by Plymouth County Extension is being held at
the Le Mars convention center. For more information visit:
