Pleasanton Unified is launching a parent-involvement course that will help adults intervene with difficult adolescents.
The 10-week Parent Project course begins Oct. 1 and runs on Thursdays from 6-9 p.m. at Pleasanton Unified district offices, 4665 Bernal Ave.
The course is meant to help empower parents by giving them the tools to identify problems and intervene early when their teen is making negative choices.
The Parent Project covers improving school performance and attendance of teens ages 13 and older, addressing problematic behavior, improving self-esteem, identifying and intervening with drug and alcohol use, developing an action plan to deal with problems and managing general conflict at home.
To register, call Rae Huseman at 925-461-6117 or Kelly Mills at 925-461-6634. Dinner will be provided at the classes.
The class costs $25 per family for Pleasanton residents. For residents of other areas, the cost is $60 per individual and $100 per family.
