Parenting Classes Q & A

What are parenting classes?

Parenting classes are an opportunity for you to refine your parenting skills and knowledge by working with a pediatric specialist. They’re a great way to feel more confident in a variety of areas and to spend time with other parents who share your parenting concerns. 

Whether this is your first or fourth child, there is always something to learn. Even the pediatricians at Advanced Pediatrics attend ongoing education and training courses to sharpen their skills. Meeting with the care team for focused parenting classes is a wonderful way to benefit from the education and expertise of your child’s pediatric professionals. 

What kinds of parenting classes are available?

Advanced Pediatrics creates parenting classes to address some of the most common areas of concern for parents. Some examples of current course offerings include:

  • Picky eating
  • ADHD
  • Potty Training 
  • Childhood anxiety
  • Newborn care
  • Tantrums
  • Sleep Structure
  • Sibling Rivalry
  • Depression
  • OCD
  • And more

These classes change from time to time, so be sure to check online to see what is currently being offered. You are also welcome to suggest class topics during your routine newborn care or well-child visits. 

Registering for parenting classes should never be viewed in a negative light. After all, these courses aren’t held to teach you how to be a parent; they’re simply an opportunity to refine and expand what you already know. 

Are there opportunities for remote parenting classes?

Advanced Pediatrics is proud to offer online classes. Connecting with a pediatric specialist in a calm, no-pressure environment is a great way for you to get the information you need from the comfort of your home. 

Your pediatrician is also happy to recommend a variety of resources for you to learn more about parenting skills and how to raise a happy and healthy child. The professionals at Advanced Pediatrics are happy to help you connect to the information you need.
