Parent Project(r) is a 13-week parenting course for parents with teenagers or pre-teens. Parents learn effective prevention and intervention techniques to help their teens grow into safe and competent adults.
Fremont Youth & Family Services, a division of the City of Fremont's Human Services Department will be hosting an upcoming session of the Parent Project starting on October 12. Developed by police, counselors, and educators, The Parent Project(r):
- Offers parents a way to love and show affection to their kids again.
- Teaches effective ways to discipline out-of-control or strong willed kids, thereby reducing conflicts and ineffective arguing.
- Offers tips for parents to help their child improve school performance and attendance.
- Aids parents in recognizing, confronting and intervening into any substance abuse and gang involvement.
The cost for the entire 13-week course is $200 for single parents and $275 for a couple (workbook and materials are included). YFS Scholarships are also available. The Fremont Family Resource Center is located at 39155 Liberty Street, Fremont, California.
