The Parent Project empowering parents transforming youthOur kids today face unprecedented pressures and problems. It is no wonder that many respond with negative, defiant or out-of-control behaviors. In partnership with the Butler County Parent Project Collaborative, Lakota is pleased to offer a special 10-week program to parents of students in grades 7-12. The “Parent Project” gives practical, concrete, no-nonsense tools, skills and resources to parents who are raising teens in today’s world. Funding is provided by grants from United Ways, Strong Families Safe Communities and local foundations. 

 

The Parent Project is a national program that has worked with more than a half million parents for nearly 30 years. The curriculum is activity-based. This allows parents to learn and practice new skills to manage their child’s behavior. Unique to the project is a parent support system. 

 

Whether you and your child are dealing with non-stop arguing, poor grades, truancy, drug and alcohol use, runaways, or any other destructive, out-of-control, or strong-willed behaviors, you can expect to create the change you want and need in your family. The Parent Project will give you the tools you need to help and support your child, promoting their safety, health and success.

  • Positive change in their child’s behavior
