Parent Education Workshops in Montpelier:

“Guiding Good Choices” to help parents

improve family bonding and reduce risk of teenage drug use

 

Montpelier, VT – Central Vermont New Directions  Coalition (CVNDC), which serves Montpelier and the surrounding WCSU towns and Washington County, is pleased to offer the award-winning parenting class Guiding Good Choices on Wednesdays, from March 18th through April 15th, 2015. Guiding Good Choices is a free, five-session workshop that aids parents and/or caregivers of fourth through eighth graders. The course covers:

 

1- Understanding the adolescent brain, risk factors, protective factors

2- Setting clear guidelines and follow through with positive and negative consequences

3- Preparing kids to respond to peer influence, refusal skills

4- Conflict management, controlling and expressing anger constructively

5- Strengthening family bonds and increasing children’s participation   

 

It is important to reach kids early--before middle school and before high school are crucial times. Guiding Good Choices has an excellent track record for preventing youth alcohol and drug use and abuse.

            Says a local parent who has taken Guiding Good Choices, “If you have kids, you owe it to yourself and your family to take this course.” Many parents feel they don’t have much influence over their child’s behavior, but research shows just the opposite. Parents are the number one influence on their child’s use of substances. In the mid  90s, Dr. David Hawkins and Dr. Richard Catalano of the University of Washington looked at 19 risk factors that affect children in their teenage years. They discovered that parents and other adult caregivers can play a major role in keeping kids on track.

Come learn the skills to keep your child safe and yourself sane! The next Guiding Good Choices workshop for parents and caregivers of fourth through eighth graders is FREE and begins soon:
