Strengthening Families Program™ sessions include all the critical core components of effective evidence-based parenting programs (CDC, 2008) including: parent and child practice time in the family sessions learning positive interactions, communication, and effective discipline. The parenting sessions review appropriate developmental expectations, teach parents to interact positively with children, increasing attention and praise for positive children’s behaviors, and reducing criticism; positive family communication including active listening, validating, respectful “I Messages”, eliminating screaming, swearing, sarcasm, and implementing family meetings to improve order and organization.. Parents also learn stress reduction, problem solving and anger management skills, and how to set clear, firm rules on no underage drinking or drug use.
- Learn to teach a 12 session evidence-based parenting education class to parents of children ages 7-17.
- Partner with your local Parenting Hub. We are hopeful that by selecting your application, TFC and your organization will be in partnership to implement the teaching of this series each year for your clients and the community.
