Parent Counseling--A Guidance Function.
Greenough, Dean R.
This paper describes a parent counseling program for the parents of upcoming senior students. The purpose of the program is to incorporate parental guidance and interest into the planning process of a student's post high school objectives. The parent counseling lasts three weeks and consists primarily of a series of interviews between counselor and parents, centering around the needs, abilities, and aspirations of the student; the available career choices and the likelihood of success in terms of the student's potential. The program has been in effect since 1968, and the data seem to indicate that students whose parents had been involved in the program had better chances of completing a post high school education and were more satisfied with their past educational majors and present occupational choice than were those students whose parents had not been so involved.
