The Parent Project® Returns to San Rafael

San Rafael, CA – November 18, 2013.  The San Rafael Police Department is pleased to announce the return of The Parent Project® to our community.  This ten week parent training program is designed specifically for parents raising difficult or out-of-control adolescent children.

The primary goals of the Parent Project® are to reduce family conflict, reduce juvenile crime, reduce recidivism and improve both school performance and attendance, the number one indicator of juvenile delinquency.  We address the critical issues parents face and offer no-nonsense solutions.  Our program topics include strategies for family arguing, poor school performance, truancy, media influences, early teen sexuality, drug use, youth gangs, violence and bullying, and runaways. 

Parents meet one night per week, for two to three hours each night, for ten weeks.  In a classroom setting, parents learn to manage teen behavior problems at home.  Parents receive and work with an activity based curriculum available only to program participants.  Finally, our program creates

on-going parent support groups to address problems after the course has concluded.

This course will be taught by the San Rafael Police Department and Youth Services Bureau at the

B Street Recreation Center.  Our first session is Thursday, January 23, 2014, 6:00pm to 9:00pm. and will continue each Thursday through March 27, 2014.  To register or inquire about the program, please contact Officer David Casalnuovo at (415) 458-5319, by email, or visit our website at  Course tuition is $50 for one parent, or $50 plus cost of additional book for a couple.  Register early as class space is limited.
