The Samaritan Center provides training, education, emotional support and encouragement to not only the boys in this program, but to their parents, extended families and guardians while in our residential program. Parents attend parenting classes, counseling, support groups and work-book / video trainings.
The Samaritan Center is a five-day residential program where the boys return to their homes on weekends, holidays and summer vacation. Using our behavior system of points and a level system, the boys learn respect for those in authority, self-accountability; the development of social skills, discipline, and conflict management. While parents or family members are in the parenting classes they learn how to better communicate with their child, learn about healthy boundaries, learn essential life skills, and discipline alternatives to help encourage their child in a more positive and constructive environment.
Our Parenting Classes provide help for families in the following areas:
- Understand the emotional needs our your child
- Develop better communication skills
- Learn effective discipline methods
- Strengthen the parent's effectiveness to nurture and teach to the uniqueness of their child
- Learn to enjoy your child again!!
