With the arrival of a child, there are some things you learn automatically, like how little sleep an adult actually needs to function, the importance of sippy cups and that polar bears may be hiding in your closets.
For other lessons, including the skills to get through those all-important first years, there’s Parenting U from Children’s Hospital & Medical Center, classes given by professionals known for their knowledge of children.
The classes are free, as is child care. To register and find other Parenting U classes, go to ChildrensOmaha.org/ParentingU or call 800-833-3100.
Momaha will also host a 6 p.m. corresponding live chat where you can ask experts at the event your parenting questions.
