Our Parenting Classes are accepted by the New York City Family
Court System. You do not need to have problems with Family Court to take
these classes, nor you need to have Children. Everyone is welcome. Two of
the main areas that we deal with are the Public School System and the Child Welfare
System. The classes have a strong component of cultural sensitivity to
Immigrants, African-Americans, and Latinos, and a non-religious spiritual
background. Our Goal is to Empower Parents to take control of their lives
and their Children's lives, and allow them to make the Best possible
decisions for their Children, based on knowledge and facts.

Our Classes consist of 7 different Modules, each one of two-hours per week. Students must complete all 7 Modules in order to get their Certificate of Completion. If a Student misses a class (Module), he or she must make-up that specific class (Module). A Student missing a class can either make it up on the same week in any of the other schedules (if seats are available), or wait 7 weeks until the same class is repeated in a new cycle. New students are accepted at any time as long as seats are available. Cycles will be running continuosly one after the other without interruption.
