Parenting is tough, even more so if you're a parent whose child has emotional and behavioral challenges or other mental health issues, substance abuse or has court involvement.
To help you fine-tune your skills from a common sense approach, the Family Advocacy Network (FAN) is offering COMMON SENSE PARENTING ® (CSP), the evidence based parent skills building curriculum originally developed by the renown Boys Town.
By the end of this 6-session series, participants will have learned techniques to address issues of communication, discipline, decision-making, relationships, self-control and school success for families in all situations.
Certificates of Completion will be issued , upon meeting class requirements at graduation. CSP generally meets standards of parent skills building for court compliance with DJJ, DSS and Truancy Courts. Consult with your court counselor for confirmation if you are court involved.
CSP is for adults only. Childcare is not provided.
This class is for parents of children ages 6-17 years of age.
Class size is limited to 6 participants.

Parenting is tough enough, but sometimes it can become overwhelming if you are a parent or caregiver of a child or children ages 2-17, how do you deal with the ups and downs of parenting? Parents can feel isolated and alone when their child presents unique parenting challenges due to an emerging mental health condition or behavioral disorder. Connecting with other parents experiencing similar issues helps many feel better able to weather the ups and downs.
This Peer led support group will be facilitated by one of our Family Advocates and provide an opportunity to learn from others and develop strategies to feel more confident and less overwhelmed with some of the day to day challenges of parenting.
