Tulsa -

Oklahoma State University's Center for Family Resilience and the Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service offer parenting courses for Latino parents with children 5-12 years old beginning Wednesday.

The classes, Padres Activos de Hoy (Active Parenting Now), cover topics such as styles of parenting, building courage and self-esteem, responsibility and discipline, winning cooperation from children, and saying no to drugs.

Parents have the option of selecting a six-week program running on Wednesdays from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. or a three-week program running Wednesdays from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on the OSU-Tulsa campus.

"The acclaimed parenting program is taught totally in Spanish using materials culturally adapted for Latino families," said Dr. Ron Cox, director of the Center for Family Resilience. "The course teaches parents techniques to raise a child using encouragement and how to build a strong parent-child relationship."

Registration is free. Participants can buy the parent workbook for $15 or rent it for $5. Seating is limited, so early registration is encouraged.

To register, people may call 918-594-8336, e-mail cfr@okstate.edu or visit www.facebook.com/okstate.cfr.
