TRIPLE P PARENTING CLASS
FOR TEEN TRUANCY
If you are a parent of a teen who is truant, this program will give you the tools you need to address and resolve the issues surrounding your teen’s school attendance. Teens skip school for a variety of reasons, and parents may not find out about the issue until a serious problem arises. This program provides information on how to identify truancy, the causes of teen truancy, how to work towards a solution, and improve communication with your teen to ensure regular school attendance. Small workshops are held in a therapeutic setting.
