FROM THE LARCHMONT-MAMARONECK COMMUNITY COUNSELING CENTER (LMCCC): Are you at a loss for how to help your child? Have traditional parenting strategies been ineffective? The LMCCC is offering an 8 week parenting skills group starting the week of October 19th.

Parents of middle and high school students will meet on Mondays 7- 8:30 pm. Parents of elementary school aged children will meet on Mondays 9:30- 11 am or Tuesdays 6:30- 8 pm. Interested?
