PACT – Ellis County Coalition for the Prevention of Child Abuse

Kids don’t come with instructions.  All parents can benefit from a parent education class!

PACT:  Parents and Children Together is a committee of the Ellis County Coalition for the Prevention of Child Abuse.

PACT was initially formed in 1979 with a grant received from the Children’s Trust Fund through Kansas Social and Rehabilitation Services.  Today, PACT is funded with a grant from the United Way of Ellis County.

The PACT group sponsors The Ten Steps to Positive Discipline class.  Parents learn how to take everyday situations and turn them into valuable learning moments in teaching children of all ages more about impulse control, conflict resolution, social skills and character development.  This class concentrates on positive communication and revolutionary discipline techniques based on the popular teachings of Dr. Becky Bailey. Ph.D.
