"The family is both the fundamental unit of society as well as the root of culture. It is a perpetual source of encouragement, advocacy, assurance, and emotional refueling that empowers a child to venture with confidence into the greater world and to become all that he can be." -Marianne Neifert
Do you ever feel as a parent that you don't know how to deal with your children's behavior or how to communicate with them in a way that they will listen? Do you ever just feel like you are at the end of your rope? Or maybe some days you feel like you don't even really like being a parent! We know how hard being a parent can be! Sometimes as a parent we just need some support, new ideas, and a new understanding of how our children work in order to improve our relationship with them drastically, as well as save our own sanity as a parent.
Parent support and education addresses parenting issues and gives parents skills to improve their confidence as a parent and to improve their relationship with their child/children. It is important to understand that each parenting program provides real life situations and perspectives to parenting.It takes into account what is realistic for each family and educates and teaches in a non-threatening, comfortable environment.
We provide individualized parenting programs where we meet with the child as well as the parents to help support both in therapeutic growth. Many times if a family has a child who is having emotional or behavioral issues we will meet with the child individually, but also meet with the parents to help teach and give ideas and techniques to use in the home to best provide a supportive, nurturing environment and help change negative behavior.
