Today, I want to share a few of my favorite FREE parenting classes. Being a mom or dad will test your mind and soul in ways you hadn’t anticipated and I’m excited to share them with you!
Why Take a Parenting Class
While Parenting classes aren’t perfect, they might give you some other ideas or strategies to try in your home to get things done.
It is important to have a lot of “tools in your toolbox” to make changes in your family — and a parenting class does just that.
Free Parenting Classes Near Me
I would check with your local library if you are looking for parenting classes near you. When I had small children at home, I took one through our city that was aimed for parents of children under five. It was extremely helpful, and they even offered daycare during the class.
Free Online Parenting Courses for Moms & Dads
Practical Parenting for Modern Moms
My favorite one is practical parenting.
It’s hard to think, as a parent that you are doing anything very well — but this one gives some practical tips to put more emphasis on your child, instead of you — you can sign-up here:
It even includes a certificate of completion when you’re done!
If homework is an issue at your house, I love Joanna’s Homework 911 book, you can get a free chapter right here. While not a free course — the book is priced well (also, you can get that free chapter, and if you like the book you might want to try the course (it has a money-back guarantee).
Other Free Options
MommyBites has a lot of great options if you’re looking for something specific from parenting experts.
Don’t forget to ask around about parenting books you can get at your local library. Some of my favorite ones includes:
- Parenting with Love & Logic
- How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk
- Siblings without Rivalry
I also have a subscription to Scribd (I can get you a 60 day free trial through that link). It makes it great to learn via books!
Other Parenting Classes
I really liked this round-up.
Court Ordered Parenting Classes
Unfortunately, none of the classes I specifically mentioned in here fulfill a court-ordered mandate.
