Family Time Visitation Center is currently offering a Parenting Program that provides an educational course that works with the whole family.  Families who are referred and selected from various sources participate with the trained facilitators in a 2 hour educational session that meets weekly for 10 weeks, at no cost to them.  During each session, adults and children take part in separate, age-appropriate creative activities as well as share a meal together. The sessions are held at the First Baptist Church, in Bennington, VT, Tuesday evenings from 5 PM-7 PM.

Nurturing Parenting Programs focus on family life skills including but not limited to communication, non-abusive discipline, how to have family meetings, developing empathy, preventing child sexual abuse, substance abuse, impact of domestic violence and dealing with anger.
