How Our Parent Education Program Works
The program is designed to assess high risk parenting and child rearing attitudes among adults and adolescents with the hopes of assisting the parent to better cope with their changing responsibilities. The program focuses on four basic types of dysfunctional parent/child interactions based on AAPI evaluation and PET curriculum:
- Inappropriate developmental expectations of children
- Lack of empathic awareness of children needs
- Attitudes concerning the use of corporal punishment
- Reversing parent/child family roles
