Active Parenting of Teens Class

ERYC chose the Active Parenting of Teens curriculum because it is an evidence based program and is a comprehensive parenting class for parents of teens and tweens. This class addresses our complicated day and age. Parents learn to face situations with confidence and courage and to meet the daily challenges of raising a teen with grace. Our two Active Parenting certified and experienced trainers, Ana Mendoza and Maria Elizalde, have been teaching the class in Spanish for several years. They enjoy watching participants learn the content and put it to use in their daily life of raising their teens. "It is so gratifying when a student tells us their relationship with their teen has improved because of the lessons we teach," said Elizalde.

A Fall 2016 graduate and mother of five, Perla Gurrola, had this to say about the class: "The Active Parenting of Teens Class is one of the best classes I have ever taken. I enjoyed going to every single class. The classes helped me understand so many things that I did not know about teenagers. Also, it showed me how to help my kids during the difficult years of being teenagers. The book is perfect, and the videos were great. It helped me to open my mind to be more understanding of my kids. The teachers were the best and both had answers for all our questions. They gave us the time to talk and discuss situations that we did not know how to handle. I loved the classes I wish there were more after the last class. I am very fortunate to have gone to the class and if I have the opportunity would take them again."


The next session will take place in Edwards at the Eagle River Village Clubhouse- see the flyer below for the six consecutive dates. Active Parenting of Teen Workshop SeriesActive Parenting combines entertaining video and engaging discussion around real-life struggles to help parents learn how to raise children who are cooperative, responsible and able to resist peer pressure. It also guides parents in dealing with sensitive issues such as drugs, sexuality and bullying. Of recent program graduates, 98% reported the highest likelihood of utilizing skills learned through the program at home, and another 98% of parent participants reported strong likelihood of changing their parenting style or communication approach as a result of course participation.
