ST. LUCIE COUNTY -- According to the 2010 Census, more than 4 million children under age 18 are living in households headed by their grandparents. Locally, close to 3,000 grandparents are currently serving as primary guardians for their grandchildren. The Children's Services Council of St. Lucie County understands how different the roles between parenting and grand parenting may be.

Beginning March 4, the Children's Services Council of St. Lucie County is partnering with WellMed to bring the "Redirecting Children's Behavior" course to local families.

These free classes will be offered every Tuesday morning from 9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. at the Children's Services Council offices in St. Lucie West.

Grandparents who participate will enjoy highly interactive sessions that educate them about building self-esteem in their grandchildren, disciplining without yelling and developing mutual respect. Registration is now open and available online at www.cscslc.org, or you can contact Tonya at (772) 408-1100 or tandreacchio@cscslc.org.

The Children's Services Council of St. Lucie County improves the lives of more than 30,000 children and families in our community by funding and partnering with quality agencies that ensure that every baby born is a healthy baby, prevent child abuse, keep kids off the streets, keep them in school, and away from drugs and alcohol.

For more information on the Children's Services Council of St. Lucie County, call (772) 408-1100 or visit www.cscslc.org.
