Loving Solutions is a guide for parents with difficult younger children, ages five to ten. Also known as "Parent Project®, Jr.," this program utilizes the same principles found successful in Parent Project® Sr., adapted to the needs of younger children. Loving Solutions provides guidelines for parents to determine when they need a "rule," what issues are negotiable, when parents can negotiate with children, how to use time-outs properly to gain substantial behavior change, how to get children to cooperate with household chores, to get along better with siblings, and improve school success.
Like Parent Project® Sr., Loving Solutions is designed with group learning activities in a workbook format for maximum learning and interest. Parents move through seven weekly units, strategically arranged to initially address easier issues and provide early success. As parents gain skill and confidence, the curriculum moves to the more difficult issues.
Loving Solutions also addresses the needs of children with Attention Deficit Disorder. This chapter in the workbook provides a brief but informative introduction and overview of the field, to guide parents through this immense subject. Parents who suspect that their child displays these symptoms, as well as parents who have a child already diagnosed with ADD/ADHD, will find this information helpful. Parents are guided through finding appropriate professional help, informed as to how diagnoses are established by professionals, what treatments are available, educated on how to best work with their health insurance, and provided tips on better managing special needs children in the home.
Individuals wishing to facilitate Loving Solutions classes are not required to attend a facilitator training. The beginning facilitators packet (to order, see below) includes an extremely detailed and thorough Curriculum Guide and camera ready overheads for use when teaching classes.
