TEANECK, N.J. -- For military families, family communication and structure can be strained with each deployment -- and Teaneck High School is hosting a series to help, on Thursday nights starting on March 24.

The Military Family Nights series is for families with at least one child 6 to 11 years old. It's based on the Strengthening Families Program, in which families practice enhancing communication skills, effective discipline, reinforcing positive behaviors and jointly planning family activities.

Here are program details:

  • The program is free.
  • A family dinner will be provided each week.
  • There will be fun family activities during each session.
  • Free babysitting for younger siblings will also be available.
  • Families will also receive a $100 incentive for completing the program.

The sessions will run from 6-8:30 p.m. each Thursday, from March 24 to June 16, at Teaneck High School, 100 Elizabeth Ave.

The program is funded through a grant provided by the New Jersey Prevention Network to the Center for Alcohol and Drug Resources, a program of Children's Aid and Family Services, and by the New Jersey Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services.
