The Daily Item

— SELINSGROVE — The Union Snyder Community Action Agency announces the start of its new free parenting program called The Family Nurturing Program. The Family Nurturing Program focuses on parents of children ages 0-5 and uses an approach that encourages families to know what to expect and what not to expect from their children, builds care and compassion, discourages physical punishment and allows families to understand each family member’s role. It also strives to empower independence within each family member.  

Daytime classes are being held Mondays through Thursday from 12:30 to 2 p.m. at the Snyder East building in Selinsgrove. In addition, a 6-week evening class is being held Thursdays from 5:30 to 7:30 at the Lewisburg Children’s Center. A light dinner is provided during the evening program. Parents and children are encouraged to attend the program together and take advantage of this free opportunity.

If you have questions or would like to register for the Family Nurturing Program, call (877) 497-1257 or374-0181 ext. 143. Additional information is also available online at
