program presented to almost 800 parents

BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Last week, the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office presented “It’s Time To Be A Parent Again” at the Emma Jewel Academy in Cocoa. 

The "It's Time To Be A Parent Again" course is designed for single parents, moms and dads, grandparents, those who are doing it right or a parent that is not quite sure how to be effective in your child's life. The seminar includes a legal overview from our State Attorney's Office. (BCSO image)

The program has now been presented to almost 800 parents and attendees.

The program works to empower parents to steer their children toward success and gives them the tools and information they need to become the chief law enforcement officer in their child’s lives.

I would like to thank Janet Price for asking us to present the program, the administration at Emma Jewel for hosting the event, the members of our agency who took part in tonight’s program, and most importantly the parents that attended to learn awareness about parenting in today’s world.
