Parent Project

Parents dealing with challenging behavior from their children may want to enroll with this program, with solutions for problems including failing grades, suspensions, drug use and more.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Parent Project provides good parents with concrete, straightforward, step-by-step solutions for challenges with children​​ experiencing failing grades, school suspension, oppositional behavior, drug use and other challenging behaviors. This nationally recognized project targets parents and families who are seeking support and information in dealing with difficult children.

Two classes are available:

  • Parent Project Sr., for families of teenagers: 8-week program, meets once per week for 3 hours;
  • Loving Solutions, for families with 5- to 10-year-olds: 10-week course, 2 hours per session (20 hours).

​Cost for workshop is typically free, except for the workbook (see prices below). If you are a trainer and are offering a class that is not listed here, please contact Renee Ako​.
