McKINNEY — McKinney ISD is pleased to announce that it will be offering free Practical Parent Education classes to the McKinney community at large beginning this month. The expanded community classes have been made possible by a City of McKinney Community Support Grant and run from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Mondays starting Feb. 10 and continuing through June 23.

Practical Parent Education is a research-based parent program that helps families grapple with the challenges of raising children in today’s complex world. Individual class topics will cover issues such as understanding the role of the parent, developing trust within the family, communication, building self-esteem and working through natural life transitions.

“McKinney ISD has been providing Practical Parent Education to our parents for the last five years, and we are excited to now be able to share this wonderful resource with residents of McKinney, Texas,” said Stella Uribe, Director of Community Affairs and Educational Grants.

Classes will be presented in both English and Spanish on alternating weeks, and free childcare will be provided for children ages 4 and older.
