The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders is pleased to announce that a series of free sessions titled “Helping your Child Succeed in School” is available for parents to help their children build essential skills that lead to a fulfilling academic experience.

“The beginning of a new school year is the perfect time for parents to help their children establish productive habits that enable them to grow and thrive,” said Freeholder Chairman Bruce H. Bergen. “This course is designed to ensure that parents are familiar with some of the tools and techniques that have proven to be effective.”

The sessions are offered through Parents in Action, a parent support group hosted by the Division of Youth Services of the Union County Department of Human Services.
