EPPING – Are you wondering how you will make it through the long summer days with your young children? Do you wish there were other parents you could talk with about parenting issues?

“Family Morning Out” may be the answer. Offered by Families First in conjunction with Epping Elementary School, this free, relaxed program for families with children ages 0 to 5 (and their older siblings) will meet on Wednesday mornings in July and August.

The program is split into two parts. During the first 45 minutes, children and parents together will explore age-appropriate activities, have positive play with peers and adults, and enjoy songs, stories and snack. In the second 45 minutes, child care will be provided while parents have an informal guided discussion of topics such as handling tantrums, sharing, effective discipline, and activities for the warm summer days.

Family Morning Out meets on Wednesdays, July 11 through August 15, from 9:00 to 10:45 a.m. at Epping Elementary School, 17 Prospect St. Families First parent educators Joanna Wicklein and Bob Pavlik will lead the program.

There is no charge to attend, but advance signup is required. To sign up, call 679-8018 x448 or 895-2305.

Families First, the Seacoast’s community health center, has been providing parent education for over 15 years and offers a wide range of classes and support groups as well as affordable health care. For more information, visit www.FamiliesFirstSeacoast.org.
