Free Online Educational Classes for Parents

A while back I did a post about Coursera and the classes I had found on it that pertained to parenting.

It was such a hit that I'm going to continue to scour the web for FREE educational  classes for parents.

Here are the latest classes I've found from COURSERA

***This course is for teachers to learn why some children have so much difficulty with reading and writing, often called 'dyslexia', and to learn more about best practice in teaching literacy to all, in light of recent scientific discoveries.


Child Nutrition and Cooking- by Stanford University- Self Paced

A childhood obesity epidemic is facing the USA and many developed nations. Why are so many foods processed, and what can we do to protect our families? We also explore the six basic ingredients every cook should have on hand!
How do children overcome hazardous experiences to succeed in life? What can be done to protect young people at risk from trauma, war, disasters, and other adversities? Learn about the importance of fostering resilience in children at risk.

If you missed the dates for these classes don't worry! They cycle through repeatedly. And many of them you can join mid-class since they are free so if it's only been a month since it began.... sign up anyway! Or check COURSERA for their next opening date.
