Pasadena City College will be offering free parenting classes beginning August 27.
Parents of children up to four years old can attend classes that include crafts, music and movement, and snacks.
Discussion topics will cover discipline, nutrition, and developmental stages.
"This is a real service to the community," Coordinator Gia Blount said. "This changes parents' lives."
Credentialed instructors will provide information about child development and parenting skills in order to support the valuable role families play in establishing the basic principles for children's lives.
