Parent Project sessions to begin
Submitted By Amy Scott
Fremont Youth & Family Services, a division of the City of Fremont's Human Services Department, will be hosting an upcoming session of the Parent Project starting October 27.
Parent Project is a thirteen-week parenting course for parents with teenagers or pre-teens. Parents learn effective prevention and intervention techniques to help their teen grow into safe and competent adults.
Developed by police, counselors and educators, the program:
Offers parents a way to love and show affection to their kids again
Teaches effective ways to discipline out-of-control or strong willed kids, thereby reducing conflicts and ineffective arguing
Offers tips for parents to help their child improve school performance and attendance
Aids parents in recognizing, confronting and intervening into any substance abuse and gang involvement
Cost for the entire 13-week course is $175 for single parents and $250 per couple. A workbook and materials are included in the fees. YFS Scholarships are also available to assist with the cost of the series.
Beginning Tuesday, October 27 for 13 weeks
6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Fremont Family Resource Center, Pacific Room
