Parenting in today's society can be complicated and difficult. Parents today are faced with obstacles that our own parents may not have had to deal with, such as the proliferation of internet related technology, crowded schools that sometimes can't hold every student as accountable as they'd like to, the pressure teens and even children put on each other to engage in sexual behavior, and the unavoidable reality of easily obtained drugs and alcohol in our community. Single parent homes and blended family situations can add further stress to parents.
Sheltered Cove Counseling Center offers parents several options to address parenting concerns and issues. These options include individual/family counseling with the parents, parenting classes, and in-home parenting consultation.
Both individual parenting counseling and the parenting group typically satisfies Court Ordered and DFCS required parenting training.
Parenting counseling offers parents an opportunity to discuss parenting concerns and strategies within the private and confidential setting of counseling sessions. Parenting counseling is no different from regular counseling, except that the primary focus of the counseling is on parenting. Other issues and concerns may be incorporated into the counseling process.
Sheltered Cove Counseling Center offers Parenting Education Groups for parents interested in enhancing their parenting skills. The groups are relatively small and discussion based, allowing parents to share their ideas and experiences with each other as they move through a curriculum based on a parenting system called Systematic Training for Effective Parenting.
