COPE's free parent workshops will resume in October. In the meantime, check Topics for Parents for information on those (and other) topics.

Tip of the Week


Drive-In movies are pretty much a thing of the past, but across New Jersey, communities are hosting free outdoor movie nights. Bring a blanket and popcorn (bug repellent too!) and enjoy these flicks under the stars. Click here for a complete listing.

Hint: Check out nearby public libraries – many have regularly scheduled free movies throughout the year.
