Families program registration ongoing

Strengthening Families Program:10-14 is registering Fort Dodge sixth-graders and their parents for the communication based prevention program scheduled to begin on Jan. 22 and Jan. 25.

The focus of the seven-week program for parents is to help them establish “love and limits” for their adolescent children. Sixth-graders will develop skills in handling peer pressure and stressful situations.

The program is offered free to families who participate. Sessions are once a week for seven weeks on Mondays and Thursdays at First Presbyterian Church, 1111 Fifth Ave. N. Registration forms will be mailed to all sixth-graders in Fort Dodge and can be returned to their school office.

Online registration is at www.extension.iastate.edu/webster. Families can register at the Webster County Extension & Outreach office.
