OKLAHOMA CITY – The Chickasaw Nation Parenting Education Program is providing high quality and up-to-date parenting information through a series of informative classes.

Classes will take place 1-4:30 p.m. every Monday from April 30 through July 16 at the Chickasaw Nation Family Support office, 4001 N. Lincoln.

This course teaches families nurturing behaviors and how these behaviors can work within each family’s unique environment.

The parenting education program is taught by a trained instructor certified in two curricula, nurturing parenting education and positive Indian parenting.

The nurturing parenting education empowers parents and enhances self-worth, empathy and discipline.

Positive Indian parenting draws on the strength of historic Native American childrearing patterns while blending traditional values with modern skills. It will teach values of storytelling, cradleboards, harmony, lessons of nature, behavior management and use of praise.

Attendees will be taught both of the curricula throughout the series of classes.

Classes are open to the public at no charge. Registration is required. Attendance of all sessions is mandatory. Child care will not be provided.

For more information, or to register, contact the parenting education program at 580-310-7900 or visit
