Active Parenting: First Five Years is a multi-model parenting education program that works with parents and their children ages 0-5 on relationship improvement, mental health, and child well-being and behavior. Using a combination of cognitive-behavioral therapy, the understanding of emotion interacting with a child’s brain, and methods for academic success, our program’s goal is to achieve both kindergarten readiness and household well-being.
A 4-week series of 2-hour classes including guided lessons, video components, a parent guide/workbook, and activities such as role-plays and skills practice to teach parents how to use logical consequences and positive discipline to reduce unacceptable behaviors in children. Participants receive a certificate at the time of program completion.
