‘Four Ways of Parenting’ workshop

Life Coach Sylvia Chesley Smith is presenting a free parenting workshop called “Four Ways of Parenting” on Lopez at the Library on Jan. 28 from 7 to 9 p.m.

“Parenting is easily the most engaging and rewarding job you will ever have, and the most challenging,” said Smith. “No one is a perfect parent and no one sets out to be a poor parent. We tend to parent the way we were parented unless we consciously learn new skills and better ways to do the job.”

Smith has 25 years experience as a counselor and parent educator.
