Where to Find Parenting Classes
you’ve got a kid on the way, it’s quite
common to be hit with extreme nervousness at the thought of being a

classes to people who are not registered at the school. They will
probably only cost between 30 and 60 dollars.
On top of
classes, you can also look for books or tapes on the
subject. This is a good option if you can’t find a class
– but if possible, it’s good to go to a class, make
