Parenting program to focus on safety in the home



If you’re a new parent, you already know that there is a lot to learn about babies.  You can’t prepare for everything, but Mile Bluff can answer some of your questions. 

To assist you during the first year of your baby’s life, Mile Bluff offers the Hand-in-Hand parenting program.  It is designed to help provide you with answers for dealing with some of the most common situations that arise during your child’s first 12 months of life.

The Hand-in-Hand program is held the second Monday of every month at 4:30 pm.  The next meeting will be Monday, September 8 and will focus on home safety.  In addition to learning how to keep their growing child safe in the home, free gun locks will also be available to parents.
 
If you are interested in learning more about the program, or want to register for an upcoming session, call 608-847-1013.
