The Parent Project is a free 12 week course that will be offered at Carlmont on Wednesday evenings from 6pm to 9pm beginning on September 10th. Classes are available to anyone who cares for a child or adolescent. Dinner will be served at 5:30pm and limited childcare spaces are available for potty trained children aged 3 to 15. Attendees will practice/learn parenting skills and recieve information about resources and other support available in their communities.
Some of the parenting skills covered are:
*appropriate ways to discipline
*improving communication skills
*improving grades and school attendance
Here's what one parent said after taking the course:
"I am a single parent of two teenagers. When I thought my children's lives were at risk, I felt lonely with no answers to all the problems in our lives. I took the Parent Project class when my children were struggling, and I finally found hope. THis class will help parents have a better relationship with their children, and help them succeed."
