Who we are

Parent Project Mission Statement

Our mission is to develop parent-training programs for parents raising difficult or out-of-control children. We are committed to providing highly effective programs that are affordable for every parent.

The Parent Project. Celebrating Over 35 Years of Service to Families.

At the Parent Project®, we believe that parents are the answer. In our 30 plus years, we have worked with over 1.5 million parents raising difficult or out-of-control children. Our programs are based on their experiences and successes. No matter how difficult the situation may be, we can help. “Little miracles”. It’s what we do!

The Parent Project is now the largest court-mandated juvenile diversion program in the country and for agencies, the least expensive intervention program available today.

There are three highly-effective Parent Project® programs serving families:

Loving Solutions is a 10-week program written for parents raising difficult or strong-willed children, 5 to 10 years of age. Designed for classroom instruction, this program has special applications to ADD and ADHD issues, and was written for the parents of more difficult children.

Changing Destructive Adolescent Behavior is a 10- to 16-week program designed for parents raising difficult or out-of-control adolescent children, ages 10 and up. Also designed for classroom use, “Changing Destructive Adolescent Behavior” provides concrete, no-nonsense solutions to even the most destructive of adolescent behaviors.

Preparing Our Kids for Success is a 2.5-hour truancy intervention parent class. This class is “Trauma Informed” and specifically designed to augment the S.A.R.B. and local Truancy Abatement efforts. Like all Parent Project programs, Preparing Our Kids for Success is based on cooperative learning norms and activity-based instruction. When you have parents and other caregivers at a S.A.R.B. or truancy abatement meeting, give them the tools they need to help their children succeed.

How Our Programs Work:

  • Parents meet one night per week for two to three hours per night.
  • The Parent Project activity-based curriculum allows parents to learn and practice behavior management techniques at home.
  • Parent support groups are formed using the UCLA self-help support group model.
  • Program orientation: behavior modification.
