Family Life Education (FLE) is a positive, preventive approach to family counseling that meets parents where they are now and provides an opportunity for them to learn with and from other parents about family concerns. The authors describe a pilot FLE group in St. Louis where multiple themes were discussed, the most central of which was anger. By hearing from other parents and having their own feelings reflected back at them, each parent gained a more sensitive perspective on the requirements for effective parenting. Though FLE is a relatively new forum in the early 1970s, it promises to be a valuable tool to family agencies and community centers around the country.
