Human Development & Relationships

Extension Florence County provides education promoting family strengths and help communities become positive environments for the family life. Programs respond to community needs with research-based education and partnerships that support Wisconsin families and communities.


Let’s face it, digital media, like television and rock’n roll, is not going away! Digital media provides young people access to a whole new virtual world where they can test some important developmental tasks, such as:

• hanging out with their friends and exploring their social status,
• testing out their identities,
• having private time to interact and communicate with close friends, or
• learning new skills that will help them become responsible, productive adult

So, how can we use digital media as a positive force?
We can integrate digital media into our responsibilities as parents and learn ways we can use digital media to help us stay connected and continue to be an influential part of our teen’s life!
Be an eParent®!
eParenting® provides parents and other caring adults ways to connect with children and adolescents using digital media.

Parents ForeverTM

Welcome

Parents ForeverTM is a court-mandated parent education class also called “divorce education” or “co-parenting education.” Parents ForeverTM is based on research about the impact of divorce and separation of families and how to not only survive, but also thrive, after a family transition. This course is built upon the belief that a family is an ongoing system of interconnected members. Family members are not identical to each other, and you cannot interact with one without thinking of the others.

Classes are held at the Florence Natural Resource Center at 5628 Forestry Drive in the lower level.
