DORSET - The Dorset School will be holding classes for parenting tips and techniques for four consecutive Thursdays, May 9-30, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. The classes are open to all parents, grandparents, and guardians with a cocus on parenting six- to nine-year-olds.

The classes will focus on winning cooperation and avoiding power struggles; understanding the root of misbehavior; discovering how and when to speak so that children listen; establishing age appropriate rules and expectations and using consequences to teach rather than punish. The class will be with Ashlee Aldrich and parent educator Linda Mitchell.
