Library hosts parenting workshop

Richmond Public Library and SUCCESS are partnering to offer a free workshop this month aimed at developing parenting skills.

Settlement practitioner Gurpreet Faridkot will be presenting the program on Aug. 28 from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at the library’s Cambie branch.

“Kids don’t come with a manual. There are no perfect parents or perfect children. We can only do our best, and we all need help once in awhile,” she said. “If you feel overwhelmed and isolated by the demands of being a parent of young children, you’re not alone.”

Faridkot will offer tips on such parenting issues as balancing work and family, love and discipline, consequences that work, creating co-operative families, and more.

This program is in English and Punjabi. The Cambie branch is located at 11590 Cambie Rd.

Register for “Workshop for Parenting Skills” at any branch of Richmond Public Library, call 604-273-2223 or visit www.yourlibrary.ca/progs.
