06/08/06 - A Texas Reader Says The Mexican Consulate Should Butt Out

From:  [Name Withheld]

The summer session 2006 course catalog from Alamance Community College located in Graham, N.C. landed in my mailbox today. 

Page 11 offers this: "!NUEVO! Cursos En Espanol." 

One particular class stood out to me. The following is a translation of the Spanish continuing education course description

STEP: Systematic Training To Be Effective Parents (in    Spanish)  STEP offers you a simple route to develop a better parent-child relationship.  Parents will learn to better understand the behavior and emotions of a child, how to strengthen the child`s self-esteem, and how to speak more effectively with them.  Other subjects of the course include dealing with U.S. school systems` expectations of parents, WHILE MAINTAINING NATIVE LANGUAGE AND CULTURE.  (Emphasis added.)

This course is recommended for parents, teachers, and childcare workers.

Joe Guzzardi comments: "Parenting" classes are all the rage in California public education. But I have to wonder if instruction on how to be a loving, nurturing and effective parent shouldn`t come before couples marry and have their children and not after the fact.

Better late than never, I suppose, but in my adult classes, where the average parent`s age is 35 and the number of children is four, the horses are already out of the barn.
