Because kids don't come with instruction manuals...

The Incredible Years Parent Program is an evidence-based treatment program that teaches parents effective skills for reducing and managing challenging behaviors and strengthening parent-child relationships. In this program, parents will learn how to use child-directed play to strengthen their relationship with their child. In addition, parents will learn strategies that will improve their child's social skills, facilitate emotion regulation, and build on school readiness and academic skills. Finally, parents will learn how to strategically use praise and incentives to decrease challenging child behaviors and will gain strategies to use discipline minimally and effectively. The Incredible Years Parent Program has the added benefit of being offered via a group format. Parents will have the opportunity to gain knowledge from and build relationships with other parents who are also struggling to raise kids with challenging behaviors.
