I have finally finished my parenting curriculum, Empowerment Parenting. This is a 25-hour parenting program for people mandated to attend parenting classes. It teaches parenting skills based on our five basic needs and emphasizes the difference between discipline and punishment. Parents are taught the formula for teaching their children self-discipline while building influential, positive relationships with their children. Parental behavior of substance abuse, domestic violence, child abuse and criminal behavior are addressed. If you know anyone looking for a parenting program for parents who are mandated to parenting classes, then please spread the word.
Cook County Probation is going to be using this curriculum starting in January with the parents with whom they work. If you are interested in learning more, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 708-957-6047.
