Parenting Classes Q & A

Why should I take a parenting class?

People sign up for parenting classes for many reasons, but they all have essentially the same goal — to deepen their understanding of the relationship they have with their children so they can offer them the best possible guidance and support. 

Sometimes, parenting classes are required by the courts during the process of divorce or in response to a legal incident. But many people voluntarily take classes because they need help negotiating difficult behavior in their children, or they simply wish to develop additional skills as parents.

What is involved in parenting classes?

Parenting comes with many joys, but it can also be confusing, isolating, and frustrating. Parenting classes give you tools that help you manage your own emotions, control your anger, and understand the underlying reasons for your child’s behavior. 

Parenting classes at Hope Recovery Services are designed to improve your:

  • Relationship with your child
  • Trust between you and your child
  • Understanding of child psychology
  • Confidence in your parenting abilities

Parenting classes can also help you navigate specific problems, such as behavioral issues, health conditions, conflict resolution, bullying, substance abuse, anger management, and other common parenting concerns. 

Parenting classes at Hope Recovery Services are customized based on your personal parenting concerns, family structure, the age of your children, and other individual factors. 

What other services are available for parents?

If you have unresolved issues from your own childhood, it can have an impact on your ability to parent effectively. You may need to work through unresolved emotional issues such as anger management, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, or anxiety. 

You may also need to address unhealthy dynamics that are present within your family and can have an effect on your children and your ability to parent effectively.

Mental health services that can benefit parents are available at Hope Recovery Services. These include:

  • Substance abuse treatment
  • Drug education
  • Anger management
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy
  • Individual counseling
