Parenting from the heart

by | Feb 2, 2020 | Education, Team

Encompass Christian Counseling is hosting a four-week parenting series called Parenting from the Heart on Mondays at Parkview Christian Church in Wooster.

Designed for parents with children of all ages, we’ll focus on topics relevant to raising today’s kids. Encompass’ clinicians will teach practical skills and strategies to help manage emotions and behaviors. Plus, it’s a great opportunity to connect with other parents.
