Classes aimed at parents and others helping tweens, teens

Providing guidance for tweens and teens as they develop isn’t always a clear path.

Classes about how to help tweens and teens as they grow and develop are taught by Cocoon House staff members and available at various Sno-Isle Libraries community libraries.

To lend a hand, Sno-Isle Libraries and Cocoon House are partnering on a series of classes to support parents and caregivers. The classes are taught by Cocoon House staff members and will take place at the Arlington, Darrington, Granite Falls, Lynnwood, Mariner, Snohomish and Sultan libraries.

Nine different classes are being offered, touching on topics such as bullying, understanding and preventing substance abuse in teens, and setting technology boundaries with teens. Classes are listed below and in the Sno-Isle Libraries calendar.
