The Parent Project®

The Parent Project® is an 11-week course on parenting a strong-willed teen. When the tools and skills that worked for the compliant child don’t work with your teen…it’s time to consider a different strategy. We teach you how to parent the child you have. The Parent Project is offered through a partnership between Humboldt County Office of Education, local school districts, Humboldt County Probation, and many stakeholder agencies. The curriculum generates a lot of parent discussion, and the facilitators observe that parents adapt information to work within their family and ethnic cultures.  Topics include: substance use, truancy, defiance, poor school performance, law breaking, and constant arguing.  Meets criteria for court ordered parenting requirements.
