RSS"Wouldn’t it be great to be able to walk into any restaurant in all of Greenville County and not have to worry about breathing in smoke? Or, do you think county or state-wide smoke-free ordinances that allow non-smokers - especially children - to breathe fresh, clean, smoke-free air a violation of smokers’ rights?

TESTIMONIALS

"This program is a superb, in-depth look into the ways to raise a child. The lessons learned are excellent tools to place a parent in control. Each of the program topics has been helpful in all of my current situations with my child. Clearly to me, consistency and effective follow through have had the most profound impact on my parenting skills. I highly recommend this program to all parents. Regardless of your current situation, all parents would benefit from this program." ~~~ Quote from a parent who succesfully completed the "Back in Control" Parenting Workshop .
