Solution Focused Parenting
Many parenting programs are problem focused and blame oriented:
"What痴 the problem and who is to blame?" Once the problem has been
identified and blame fixed, the assumption is that things will change for
the better. This assumption is proved wrong time and time again.
This workshop was developed to meet the needs of parents of children who
have been placed in state custody due to behavioral problems.
However the workshop is valuable for any parent of a difficult teen.
Congregations might want to sponsor this work shop as part of their
outreach to the community. Contact us to inquire further.
Solution Focused Parenting is based on seven foundational
principles that help parents learn how to close the door on past failures,
search for solutions that are a best-fit for them (not some fictional
family), how to form and implement change plans, and how to avoid the
seven traps that kids set for their parents. The following topics
are explored in the workshop:
