Classes for parents with challenging teens

Parent and son

The City of Carlsbad Police Department will be offering a series of classes for parents struggling with teens called “The Parent Project.”

The Parent Project is an award winning, activity-based parenting course that helps parents through their teen’s challenging adolescent years.

“The teenage years can be uniquely challenging for most teens and their parents,” said Penny Velazquez, program administrator and instructor. “The Parent Project provides essential support for parents with strong-willing and out-of-control teens.”

Parent Project graduates have commented, “Thank you for bringing my son back to me;” “Life is improving daily;” and “This class covers it all.”

Classes will be 10 consecutive Tuesday nights from 6 to 9 p.m., starting October 1 with the exception of Nov. 26.  The classes will be held at the City of Carlsbad Senior Center located at 799 Pine Avenue.  The classes are open to all parents, not just City of Carlsbad residents.  

The fee for class materials is $30 per individual or $40 per couple. There is no cost for active duty military families.
