The Parent Project

Providing solutions and skills for parents with difficult or out-of-control adolescents ages 11-19

Why should a parent attend the Parent Project®?   You will find some useful skills & solutions for you and your family.  You aren’t alone.  Over 500,000 parents before you expressed the same feelings of frustration, hopelessness, despair, anger and pain.  Not everyone’s child is the same.  What works for one child will not always work for another.  The Parent Project is based in part from the input of those 500,000 parents who have gone before you.  Would you be willing to  invest 24 hours, just one day of your time for the opportunity to improve and change your family’s life?  Let’s make it happen.
