Note: Some families require more help than a parenting
education class can provide. Active Parenting Publishers does
not guarantee changes in children as a result of attending parenting
classes. Our programs are educational in nature, not therapeutic.
Throughout the program, parents are taught that change occurs
when they (the parents) work to make the changes. If problems
persist, please don't give up; seek the help of a social services
or mental health professional.
