Thank You for all your support!
The class focuses on difficult children and is both a prevention and intervention program. Skill building workshops are offered with added emotional and practical support for parents and/or caregivers. This is done by offering behavioral approaches that include: love and affection, clear rules, consistent consequences, structure, and active supervision. The class also shows participants how to find help, communicate values/standards, emphasizes family unity and builds positive self-concepts that are individually tailored to each family system.
