Current LSY Programs

Effective Parenting

The Effective Parenting program teaches a parent how to implement good parenting skills and instill strong values for their child or children. This program provides the parent with an opportunity to engage one on one with other parents who can share real life parenting experiences. The classes are executed through group sessions, workshops, and hands on training with the parent specialists. These parent-teachers guide a parent in a step by step training process. The first step in Effective Parenting is that a parent gets to understand themself better through a Question and Answer session with the parent-teacher. Effective Parenting specializes in "Patience and Preparedness" for your child or children. The classes also teach you to set goals and expectations for yourself and your family. The last phase of Effective Parenting is preparing a structured plan that works for you, which also ensures a positive environment to raise a child. Effective Parenting offers a positive choice to a better life situation for you and your family.
