Parents Forever

Whether you are married and seeking divorce or never married but now separating, the impact on your child(ren) is significant. Research indicates that traumatic and/or stressful events can affect children as young as one year old. Parents want to do their best to minimize the negative impact and keep their children from getting in the middle of the conflict between the parents.

Parents Forever™ is an education program developed by University of Minnesota Extension based on the research about the effects of divorce on children. Research on program effectiveness was conducted by the NDSU Extension Service. Parents Forever™ has been taught by NDSU Extension Agents for more than 10 years.

4-H Range Judging - Tentative

Range judging is learning to “read” the range to make proper management decisions.

Contestants learn to:
•recognize the components of the range resource,
•evaluate the ecosystem’s current condition,
•develop management practices to improve the ecosystem, and
•develop better understanding of the plant communities.

Learning to judge range provides effective tools that are used to manage the range resource. The objective of the contest is to teach participants some basic principles of range ecology, including soil-plant interaction, plant-animal interaction and plant succession.

Langdon REC Soil Health Tour-2014

Managing the soil water-table depth and having a vegetative cover at the soil surface is essential to the remediation of saline and sodic soils. Cover crops not only use the excessive soil moisture but they also provide soils with a cover which minimizes the capillary rise, reduce the loss of top soil along with improving soil organic matter levels.

With the help of local NRCS and SCD, Langdon REC will be hosting its 2014-Soil Health Tour, which will include tour of a farm, talks about the management of excessive subsoil moisture and role of different crops/grasses, two talks in a soil pit and NRCS rainfall simulator demonstration.

Becoming a Love & Logic Parent

Becoming A Love & Logic Parent
Would you like a parenting plan that helps you teach your child how to stay calm in emotionally intense situations? Would you like your child to do what they are asked without repeating yourself over and over?

In six 90-minute sessions, participants learn practical skills that can be used immediately with children ages 7-12. Love allows children to grow through their own mistakes. Logic allows them to live with the consequences of their choices. Sessions focus on raising responsible kids; The Love & Logic formula; “C” stands for control that’s shared; “O” is for ownership of the problem; “O” is also for opportunity for thinking; “L” stands for let empathy and consequences do the teaching.

ND Growing Futures approved for 9 hours.

WHEN: Wednesdays, September 10 through October 15, 2014 6:30 – 8:00pm
WHERE: Sessions available in Bismarck, Elgin, New Salem, and Washburn ND

Parents Forever

Whether you are married and seeking divorce or never married but now separating, the impact on your child(ren) is significant. Research indicates that traumatic and/or stressful events can affect children as young as one year old. Parents want to do their best to minimize the negative impact and keep their children from getting in the middle of the conflict between the parents.

Parents Forever™ is an education program developed by University of Minnesota Extension based on the research about the effects of divorce on children. Research on program effectiveness was conducted by the NDSU Extension Service. Parents Forever™ has been taught by NDSU Extension Agents for more than 10 years.
