    Being a good parent is probably the most difficult job most people ever take on. And it’s a job that doesn’t automatically come with training. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t great specific skills training available. Parents can get real help through the Active Parenting programs offered by Humboldt County Juvenile Services. 
    Facilitator Candace Cartier is an enthusiastic advocate for what the programs can do for families. Cartier has worked with Humboldt County Juvenile Services for 23 years. But it has been her work as a mentor/facilitator for Project MAGIC and the parenting classes that has brought her some of the greatest satisfaction.
    “These programs give kids and parents skills that empower them to have the kind of life they really want,” said Cartier. “Having specific communication, encouragement and discipline skills gives parents the tools they need to be the kind of parents they want to be.”
