Join our parenting program to learn how to work together as parents and influence your child’s behaviour more effectively
We know that parenting issues, such as child problem behaviour, rebellious youth, and teen mess-ups, can cause stress on parents and families.
Parenting presents practical strategies for parenting children from birth through the turbulent teenage years. Too often, young people face the multifaceted challenges of parenting children with little or no preparation. Success in the family is a cherished goal of most adults. This program helps parents design and achieves their own plan for success as parents. This program fills a need neglected by most secondary and university curricula — how to be a good parent.
As a parent, you face one of the most challenging, and rewarding roles of your life. No matter how much you love your child, there will still be moments filled with anger, frustration, and at times, desperation. What do you do?
Our goals are to help parents:
- Improve verbal and non-verbal communication in the home
- Prevent and resolve family conflict, in a manner that preserves the dignity and worth of all family members
- Help children develop the skills of self-management and maturity, through cooperation, responsibility, independence, and courage
- Build a positive, strong, and resilient self-image in our children and ourselves
