The best thing we can do for our children is to give them lots of
love and affection. This will influence a child's development into
adulthood. The quality of the relationship we have with our children,
their happiness, and even of their health is affected by parenting.
Encouraging children to become independent and happy with them
self as a unique person helps with their confidence in life.
Your children benefit from how you treat them and also from
how you treat your partner and yourself. Getting along with the
other parent is necessary because children want their parents to
get along. Our classes provide education and counseling to benefit
the whole family unit. Family counseling is also available for those
who want additional assistance.
New Directions offers 10-52 weeks parenting programs. The
programs are approved by Los Angeles County Probation, Courts,
and the Department Of Children and Family Services.
