Worcester County Health Department offers nurturing parenting classes


Snow Hill, MD– The Worcester County Health Department (WCHD) is committed to helping parents establish clear standards and healthy beliefs. Because of that philosophy, WCHD will be offering free Nurturing Parenting classes available throughout the county beginning in mid-September. Classes will be available at the following locations:


  • Pocomoke Health Center, 400 Walnut Street, Pocomoke, MD. Wednesdays from 3-4pm, September 16-October 21, 2015.

WCHD invites all parents to attend the six to eight week interactive course. Nurturing Parenting is a program that involves parents, grandparents, children, teens, and other extended participants. Research has shown that engaged families have the greatest impact on changing their family dynamics. The program will focus on increasing communication, building bonds, developing routines, asserting discipline, meeting needs (both of parents and children), as well as understanding emotions and how to express those feelings.
