Parent Project

February 11, 2020 - April 28, 2020
5:30PM - 8:30PM

Hamilton Southeastern Schools and Hamilton County Department of Probation Services have teamed up to offer the Parent Project® to parents beginning on February 11, 2020.  The class will meet at 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. for 11 weeks at Fishers High School. 

If you’re interested in learning how you can prevent arguments with your child, improve their school attendance, and performance or prevent or intervene in alcohol and other drug use, then Parent Project® may be for you.

Please read below for more information:

What is Parent Project®?
It is a 11-week program designed specifically for parents of strong-willed or emotionally intense adolescent children.  The curriculum involves concrete prevention, identification and intervention strategies for the most destructive of adolescent behaviors (poor school attendance and performance, alcohol and other drug use, runaways and violent teens, etc.).  Click here to watch a brief video on the program.

How does it work?
Parents meet one night a week for approximately three hours. Parents receive and work within an activity-based 216-page curriculum, “A Parent’s Guide to Changing Destructive Adolescent Behavior,” available only to program participants. Parent Support Groups are formed using the UCLA self-help support group model. The program is oriented toward behavior modification.

Why should I attend this class when it’s my kid who got in trouble?
It is important to recognize this program is not a “parenting class” designed to “teach people how to be better parents.” This program is designed to offer parents strategies in dealing with strong-willed and emotionally intense children. It also offers parents support and encouragement as they deal with difficult circumstances. This program requires 33 hours of classroom work – less than a single work-week for an opportunity to make a significant improvement in family relationships. We believe that every parent who has successfully completed the program at the Hamilton County Juvenile Services Center has walked away with something positive to show for their efforts.
