Parenting Classes

Cabrillo Extension has teamed up with Positive Discipline Community Resources to provide specialized parenting classes geared towards building relationships that foster energetic and values-based approaches to helping our young teenagers pursue successful career paths.

These classes offer parents the opportunity to learn about the child's world so as to better understand thoughts, feelings and the decisions children make.

Focusing on families and middle school teens/pre-teens, these classes will teach parents about the changes that come with this new developmental stage. What's more, parents will learn how to help their teens navigate the transition from middle school to high school in a way that actively helps prepare them for their futures.

Come and gain new understanding of behaviors, discover insight about the physiological changes of the teenage brain, and learn how to foster a sense of capability in your child.


The New Territory of the Teenage Years

Feel like your child has changed overnight and no longer listens to anything you have to say? This class explains why that is by offering parents greater knowledge of this new developmental phase. By exploring what we want for our children and the importance of "connecting before correcting" parents will gain a clearer perspective on how to navigate what lies ahead. Learn about the changes occurring in the teenage brain and the importance of brain function for clear communication. This class also teaches some simple and effective tools to encourage your teen’s participation.

Parents and Teens Together, Setting the Course!

The final class in the series invites the teenagers to attend with their parents. Having both parents and teenagers in class is an opportunity to explore ways to work in partnership on mutual goals. Together we will develop our emotional vocabulary and how to communicate effectively and respectfully. Practice how to have family meetings, and making agreements on issues of importance. Both parents and teenagers will learn about each other, how to communicate given each other’s personalities, and how to see change as a continuum with opportunities for the future.
