For the adults we offer information sessions geared towards strengthening the relationships between the child and his or her parent/grandparent. We educate class members on current events/trends and provide information to assist with problems their child may be having at school or at home. Our goal with Parenting Tools and Tips sessions are to close the communication gaps between children and their parents.

Training will be offered to school age youth and adults looking for tools to improve their behavior, and reduce their negative responses to anger and life stressors. Group members may be referred by: schools, churches, families, and even the juvenile court system. Social Skills tools such as Aggression Replacement Therapy, Second Step, and Adolescent Journey of Hope will be used over a 6 to 10 week period to teach behavior modification skills.
