School Age Basic Program
For parents with children ages 6-12 years.
The School Age Basic parenting program strengthens parent-child interactions and attachment, reducing harsh discipline and fostering parents’ ability to promote children’s social, emotional, and academic development.
Parents learn how to:
- Monitor children after school
- Set rules regarding TV, computer, and drug use
- Support children’s homework
- Partner with teachers so that they can promote children’s academic, social, and emotional skills.
In the parenting groups, trained Incredible Years® facilitators use video clips of real-life situational vignettes to support the training and stimulate parenting group discussions, problem solving, and practice exercises.
- Program 9 – Promoting Positive Behaviors in School Age Children
- Program 10 – Reducing Inappropriate Behaviors in School Age Children
- Program 8 – Supporting Your Child’s Education
