Parent Project

The Parent Project

There's still room in fall sessions of Parent Project Junior (Loving Solutions) and Parent Project Senior.  These classes are offered as part of our ongoing partnership with the Vacaville Police Department/FIRST division. Join the more than 500,000 parents who've attended these classes nationwide.  For parents by parents!   

Each 10-week class is specifically geared towards parents of challenging, strong-willed and/or destructive children.  While there is an upfront cost, there are scholarships available and for parents completing the courses, we have a surprise in store for you!  Please feel free to post, share and distribute these flyers to anyone who might be interested.
