10 Week Parent Project

Empowering Parents

The 10-week Parent Project course was created specifically for parents with difficult or out-of-control adolescents. Parents learn and practice specific prevention and intervention strategies for destructive behaviors-from truancy, alcohol and other drug use, gangs and other criminal behavior, running away, to violence and suicide. Parents are self-referred or can be referred to Parent Project classes by school officials.

Are you a frustrated parent trying to get your child to complete their homework and/or chores? Is there a little too much "drama" in your home? Address these issues now when things are not as bad as they could be! This is a nationally recognized program designed for raising children in these challenging times. Many parents have taken advantage of the opportunity to gain more confidence in their parenting skills at this convenient location.

This program will help you to:

  • Create a home discipline structure that works
  • Improve school performance
  • Prevent or stop alcohol and drug use
  • Especially designed for parents of strong willed children!
