Description:

Parenting Education classes strengthen the knowledge base and practical parenting skills of parents and guardians with the intent to improve parenting behaviors. Parenting education services target parents with youth ages 5 – 18 years and use the evidence-based “Active Parenting” curriculum. The classes are taught by a certified instructor. The “Active Parenting” curriculum assists parents with identifying their individual parenting styles, provides examples of non-violent discipline, addresses how offering choices enhances self-esteem, and provides suggestions for communicating with children. Sessions also show parents how to handle sensitive issues such as drugs and violence. Family meetings and the importance of playing with children are also addressed.


Parents will complete ten, one-hour sessions as they progress through the curriculum. The training also addresses the following topics: styles of parenting,
building courage and self-esteem, why children misbehave, techniques to avoid
paying off misbehavior, how to hold family meetings, problem-solving discussions,
and saying no to drugs. The class is taught from a non judgmental strength
perspective. Participants share their experiences and learn together.
