Nature of Incident:

Camarillo Parent Project Class

Location:

Camarillo Police Station

Narrative:

The Camarillo Police Department has a great interest in ensuring children reach their scholastic and personal growth potential.  In today's society, children face many obstacles, bad influences, and distractions, which create added difficulties for the parent(s) trying to raise them.  Some children engage in harmful behaviors fueled by negative social influences including alcohol, drugs, gangs, and peer pressure.

 

In furtherance of our commitment to the community, the Camarillo Police Department is offering a parenting class on Wednesday evenings for ten weeks starting on January 16, 2013. 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 to help them develop more successful children.  We are excited to offer these sessions and truly wish to support parents by offering strategies to deal with difficult children.

 

The course content consists of methods 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. This course is free, but there is a $20 fee for the book. Interested parents are asked to call Senior Deputy Bea Hughes or Tiffiney Lewis for further information.
