Parent Project Class
Parent involvement is the key to behavior change with difficult adolescents. The Parent ProjectÂ® is a parent training program designed for parents of acting out adolescents (those often referred to with the labels of oppositional defiant, or conduct disorder). Many families have found the Parent ProjectÂ® to be an invaluable resource in providing parents with sound education, structure and guidance. Topics include reducing family conflict and arguing, improving school performance and attendance, identifying and intervening with alcohol and other drug abuse, negative peer associations, gang involvement and helping parents to set effective applicable limits. Parents who attend the Parent Project are more likely to see their childâ€™s attendance at school improve, and to require less school based disciplinary resources as parents find powerful interventions at home with which to bring about change in their children. The motto of the Parent ProjectÂ® is â€œParents are the answerâ€¦when they have the tools they need.â€ Give us 24 hours, and it will change your home life. The class runs for 12 weeks beginning Monday, February 23, 300 Hoohana St. Kahului. The class is being sponsored by House of New Life and the Department of Education, and is offered free of charge to the community. There is a $25.00 charge for the accompanying 180-page workbook â€œA Parentsâ€™ Guide to Changing Destructive Adolescent Behavior.â€ Call Lynda Shimodoi @ 344-7308 or visit houseofnewlife.org to sign up today.
