Juvenile Justice Parenting Program: Parenting of Teens
These classes are for parents of teens and at-risk youth. Families may attend because their child has come to the attention of the court, is truant from school or is involved in activities that put him/her at risk of court involvement. Both parents and the youth may participate in the program.
While parents are exploring and strengthening their parenting skills, the youth address issues such as peer pressure, choice-making and anger management. Frequently both groups discuss specific risky behaviors such as drug use and sexual activity.
Classes are held in two-hour sessions one night a week for eight weeks. They are offered throughout the county at various locations when in-person classes are available. The program fee is $40 for all families. The groups are led by instructors who have master's degrees and extensive experience working with at-risk youth and their families.
