Free Parenting Help

If you have not had the opportunity to view the wonderful session on “Effective ways to connect with your child: Get helpful parenting techniques from Universal Parenting Place” featuring Paige Marcantel, please check out the video on Baptist’s Facebook page. This video and the Universal Parenting Place are great resources for your parenting groups and congregation.

July is the best time to schedule back-to-school physicals for your children.

While enjoying time off with your children in July, you also should consider scheduling back-to-school physicals and eye and dental exams. Taking care of these appointments in July will help you beat the rush and avoid missing any school deadlines. If you need a pediatrician or other specialists, please visit Baptist’s Find a Doctor page.

July also is a good time to take advantage of free programs at the library and city parks. Click here to learn more about free outdoor fun at Shelby Farms Park.
