Program helps parents deal with kid's challenging behaviour

HAS your child ever misbehaved so badly you considered listing them on eBay?

There is hope - with a free service to teach parents in Maryborough and Hervey Bay.

Jenny Hughes said there were a lot of people who could do with the assistance.

Management of Young Children Program operates under the umbrella of the Department of Education.

It is an individual parenting skills training and support program for parents of children with difficult behaviour.

It is a practical approach aimed at restoring a parent-child relationship which has become imbalanced because the child seeks control through oppositional behaviour.

The aim is that the parent, with support, is able to muster skills in child management which will restore a loving and functional relationship.

For more information, phone Maryborough 4120 2656 or Pialba 4197 7743.
