Parent Coaching is a program for parents who want to improve their skills and
strategies. The program also offers training in communication, problem
solving, and methods of discipline. The issues or problems addressed are selected by those attending. A
group of experienced and professional staff are available to families as needed,
yet emphasis is placed on drawing out the abilities of parents.
Irene Perler provides leadership for this
program. In her words, “Families are talking more easily about how our shared
family life ways stretch us and ask us to grow and change. The entire community benefits from the
uniqueness of each family unit and from the shared guidelines that parents have
developed for living and working with children.”
