Parent Skills & Support Groups for Children of All Ages
A parenting skills and support group will offer a support network and process group for parents to connect and feel less alone on the island of parenting.
We are offering separate groups for children ages 3-6, 7-11, and 12+. Each group will focus on specific positive parenting strategies you can implement to support the behaviors you want to see at home developmentally appropriate for each age level.
For Parents of Littles, Age 3-6:
- Are you a parent of a child who is between 3 – 6 years old?
- Are you aware that your child is struggling emotionally or behaviorally?
- Would you like your relationship to be less stressful and closer/more enjoyable?
- Do you find yourself feeling exhausted, overwhelmed and at a loss for how to respond?
- Are you tired of feeling your child is not listening to you?
Learn ways to decrease stress with your child in our parent group for ages 3-6.
Parenting Support for Ages 7-11
- Is your child between the ages of 7-11?
- Are the parenting strategies you have been using just not working anymore?
- Are behavioral issues with your child becoming frustrating and you don’t where to turn for help?
With group support and a parenting specialist, you can learn the skills necessary to feel more connected with your child and able to handle the many challenges of being a parent for children ages 7-11.

Benefits of Parenting Support with CPRT Training
Parents of children with social, emotional or behavioral problems or challenges can often feel alone or frustrated and not know what to do. In this parent group, you will learn effective skills to help your child regardless of your child’s emotional, mental health or behavioral challenges.
A parenting skills group helps normalize your frustrations and challenges as others are learning and going through the same thing.
If you feel like you’ve tried everything and just don’t know what to do, learning new, effective parenting skills can help.
Learning new ways of responding to your child can decrease stress and improve the overall tone in your home. Regardless of your child’s challenges, it can improve their listening skills, problem behaviors and emotional upsets.
