Parents placed on community supervision may be required to attend a parenting class through ESCAPE Family Resource Center within three months of their initial reporting. The classes are taught by professionals and they focus on important topics such as; managing stress, communicating with children and the other parent, resolving conflict, learning discipline, and co-parenting.
