BUCKLEY AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. --
The Health Promotions Program offers classes for parents that teach alternative ways of dealing with the struggles with raising a child.

One of the classes offered for parents is Love and Logic, a behavioral health interactive seminar, relating to parenting tools using love and logic techniques. It focuses on allowing your child to make behavioral choices and teach responsibility and respect. Parents learn how early childhood parenting is fun and that the experience of parents creates happy families and responsible children.

Participants speak about experiences with their children and look for different avenues to deal with situations that arise. The participants of the class bounced ideas and experiences off one another in order to come up with new ways of improving their child-rearing techniques.

Senior Airman Mariamonicagrace Talbott, 460th Operations Group commanders support staff administrator, found that the class was beneficial to her understanding of how to deal with her child differently and look at every mistake her son makes as an opportunity for him to learn and teach him.

The ability to interact with other parents during the class in an open forum allowed for discussion on different techniques to help raise children.

"I found it very beneficial," said Senior Airman Rebecca Church, 310th Space Wing Force Support Squadron special assistant. "Over the last 17 years I've taken several years of early childhood developmental courses but this one brought new perspectives. The open dialog about the material takes the lesson further than any DVD, book, or, site can. The lunch and learn was a casual and informative setting. It was nice to connect with other parents that also want to invest in parenting."

The next Love and Logic course will be offered in November. For more information on classes offered at the Health Promotions Center, contact 720-847-5699.
