When you're a parent, you're always wondering if you're doing everything right. Is my child developing at the right pace? Am I a good enough parent? How can I raise a responsible child?

To help with those questions, the Marion Public Library has partnered with the Parent Education Consortium (PEC) to host a six-week workshop for parents of children five and under. It's called "1-2-3 Magic: Effective Discipline" and will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Monday evenings from Sept. 11 through Oct. 16.

The PEC offers support and resources on lots of topics, including:

Ages and Stages: Milestones


Early Literacy: Reading and Talking with Young Children

Family Routines

Coping with Divorce and Family Change

Kindergarten Readiness

Tips for Busy Parents

Extended Families

Tech and Kids

Everything taught in this class is evidence-based and easy to learn. 1-2-3 Magic offers strategies for parents to manage their children's challenging behaviors. Parents will work together with the PEC facilitator to determine the areas of concern and establish action steps. Each workshop will begin with a FREE family meal, followed by a parent-child activity, and ending with an hour-long parent workshop. This workshop offers an opportunity for caregivers to come together to share resources and experiences! Materials, food, and childcare are provided FREE of charge.

Families must have one child between the ages of 0-5 years to register. Older siblings are welcome to attend with the family. Register at
