Narrative:  

The City of Thousand Oaks, the Thousand Oaks Police Department, and Ventura County Behavioral Health have a mutual interest with the community in ensuring that children reach their scholastic and personal growth potential. In today's society, children have several obstacles, bad influences, and distractions.  Raising children is not easy.  Children sometimes engage in harmful behaviors fueled by negative influences including alcohol, gangs, and peer pressure.

 

In furtherance of our commitment to the community, the City of Thousand Oaks, the Thousand Oaks Police Department, and Ventura County Behavioral Health will be offering a parenting class in Spanish on Wednesday evenings for ten weeks starting on September 13, 2017.  Parents with difficult, defiant, or problematic children are encouraged to attend; however, all parents of middle and high school students will also benefit from this course.  Our goal is to give parents guidance and to develop more successful children.  We are excited to offer these sessions and truly wish to support parents and offer strategies to deal with difficult children.

 

The course content consists of ways to address drugs, sex, gangs, poor grades, runaways and violence.   Additional content includes guidance in gaining children's compliance of house rules, how to never argue with your child again, and how to use other parents for support.  Additional information can be reviewed at www.parentproject.com.  Interested parents are asked to call (805) 371-8354.   Please reserve your spot early for the Spanish Parent Project class due to limited seating. 

 

An English Parent Project class will be offered in the coming months.
