Adolescent Parenting Program (APP) provides support for parenting teens up to age 17. The program works to help parenting teens remain in school, graduate from high school, and delay a second pregnancy.
The Nurturing Parenting Programs are family-based programs that can be offered in a group setting, in a home-visiting setting, or as a combination of both group meetings and home visitation. Components of the program include 1) developing empathy, facilitating parent-child bonding and attachment; 2) teaching parents appropriate expectations of children’s growth, particularly ways to promote children’s feelings of self-worth, trust, and security; 3) employing discipline that promotes the dignity of children and adults; 4) empowering adults and children to nurture themselves, others, and their environment; 5) promoting positive self-worth; and 6) helping all family members develop a meaningful level of selfawareness and acceptance. Parent education programs that are designed to prevent the development of poor parenting behaviors are short-term, approximately five to 18 sessions in length. Parenting intervention programs are designed to “intervene” to prevent escalation in the early stages of maltreatment. These are generally from 12 to 20 sessions. Parenting treatment programs are designed to “treat” abusive and neglectful parent-child or parent-teen dysfunctional interactions. These are generally 15 to 25 sessions.
