    Programs that teach skills that enable parents to deal constructively and consistently with a broad spectrum of child rearing problems which may include sibling rivalry; school behavior and performance; poor self-esteem; shyness; drug use; sexual promiscuity; and the whole range of negative, acting-out behaviors including whining, temper tantrums, disobedience, insolence and destructiveness. Some parenting skills development programs utilize a step-by-step approach for managing specific problems and may incorporate application at home of techniques that were discussed and practiced in the classroom setting. Other programs may offer participatory family workshops which provide opportunities for parents and children to learn and practice methods for dealing with one another under the guidance of a trained facilitator. Most training programs teach the parent a particular way of talking and relating to their children that reinforces positive behaviors and communication and decreases negative behaviors while supporting the development of a relationship that is built on fairness, mutual caring and respect.

Helping parents to build self-esteem and a positive outlook is a focus of the program. The program focuses on empowering parents so that they can make more informed decisions in the lives of their children. The parenting sessions are held two hours per week and include videos, lectures, group discussions and individual conferences. This program focuses on equipping natural parents with knowledge and skills related to child development, healthy nutritional patterns, good health and hygiene practices, identifying forms of child abuse, proper disciplinary techniques, child safety issues, life skills, interaction with various systems such as DHS, educational and welfare, and many other subjects related to child rearing and child/parent relationships. Bi-monthly individual meetings and post graduation follow-up reports are used to track and document each parent's progression during and following the program. The program has a Community Resource Coordinator who keeps in contact with the client's social worker via correspondence and/or telephone to report on client progress during the program. The program includes field trips, an incentives system, tokens, food served and, at the conclusion of sixteen weeks, a big graduation celebration with friends and family and a certificate of completion.
