What is Parent Project Jr. : Loving Solutions?
Parent Project Jr. is a 10 - week parent-training program designed specifically for parents raising difficult younger children, ages 5-10 years. Also known as “Loving Solutions”, this program utilizes the same principles found successful in Parent Project® Sr., adapted to the needs of younger children.
- With a focus on positive home/school communication, home learning activities, and classroom behavior, Loving Solutions helps parents become actively involved in their child’s education and helps set the stage for lifelong learning.
- Loving Solutions also addresses the needs of children with Attention Deficit Disorder. The workbook provides a brief but informative introduction and overview of the field, to guide parents through this immense subject. Parents who suspect that their child displays these symptoms, as well as parents who have a child already diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, will find this information more than helpful.
Who Should Attend?
- The parent/guardian who has primary day-to-day responsibility for supervision of strong-willed child age 5- 10; ideally both parents attend the program.
- Parents or caregivers who have a desire to learn new ways to build a stronger relationship with their child and manage challenging behaviors.
- Child programming (including homework help) is available while parents attend Loving Solutions.
