Parent Project is a thirteen-week class series that teaches parents effective prevention and intervention techniques in order to help their teenagers develop into safe and competent adults. The series will offer ways to never argue again with your child; improve school attendance and performance; recognize or intervene in alcohol and other drug use; prevent and intervene in gang and other criminal activity; find solutions for violence, running away, and suicide; and improve family relationships and create peace in the home.
Instructors include Jody Montgomery, a certified Parent Project facilitator who has taught 20 years in local public schools and has facilitated parent/teacher/adolescent educational enrichment workshops, and Anya Marquez, a registered Marriage and Family Therapist intern, currently providing child and family therapy at Youth and Family Services. She has been facilitating Parent Project for three years.
Parents and Guardians are strongly encouraged to attend class together. The class is every Tuesday evening beginning October 4 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. There is a one-time $35 material fee required for registration. The weekly fee is based on family income. Classes will not be held on November 22, December 20, and 27.
This class is held in English. The Spanish speaking class is held on Wednesdays beginning October 5. Both classes are for parents of strong willed teens and preteens.
