Parent Education

Also Known As: Y's Words for Parents

Professional staff and trained parent volunteer leaders provide workshops, classes, and individual consultations that help parents to be more effective in parent-child and/or parent-teen relationships. We offer our workshops and classes upon request at PTA meetings, and school sponsored programs. Classes and consultations for parents of preschool through elementary age children exploring such topics as bedtime struggles, lying, and sibling rivalry. Parents will learn to identify the purpose of a child's misbehavior and further develop effective discipline and encouragement strategies for positively redirecting these behaviors.
