    Center for Parenting Education - Internet Based
    The Internet Based Parenting Education program consists of two different approaches to reach parents who cannot come in to attend the programs we hold at our site. The first is live online educational workshops in which parents attend the program in a virtual meeting room in live time. There is a mix of formal presentation, interactive exercises and opportunities for parents to share their stories and ask questions. The second type of program consists of "on demand articles" which are placed on our website and available to parents whenever they have the time or need to address certain issues. These articles, either audio-based narrated power points or text only, are short (5 to 10 minutes) and cover challenges that parents face as they raise their children. The advantage of these programs is that parents can attend/learn the information from the comfort of their own homes, accommodating their hectic schedules, and without having to consider child-care needs

    Juvenile Justice Center Family Services of Philadelphia
    Juvenile Justice Center of Philadelphia - Parents in Training
    A program for parents provided by Juvenile Justice Center of Philadelphia since 1997 Many children enter the Department of Human Services system neglected and/or abused by natural parents who lack appropriate parenting skills. Unfortunately, there is a shortage of training programs which address this issue. The Parents-In-Training Program's goal is to fill that void by providing a supportive group environment and useful information so that biological mothers and fathers can become successful parents. 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.

    Women's Help Center
    Women's Help Center, Inc. Parenting Skills Classes
    Program that teaches 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.
