Parenting. Monograph 5.
Portsmouth School Dept., RI.
The sixth of eight related documents, this monograph describes the parent study group aspect of the Reading Instruction and Pupil Personnel Services (RIPPS) program. The document describes the background and rationale for this parenting program, designed to help parents understand their child and the role parents play in a child's development, and to teach parents skills that will help enable the child to function more effectively in school and at home. Procedures for notifying parents of the study group are given, followed by a description of the actual study group meetings. The goals of the program and the process by which those goals are met are also described. The advantages for a parent group whose leader is at once a family counselor, school psychologist, and a teacher are explored. The appendix contains a bibliography of suggested references for developing such a parenting program, a course outline, and guidelines for parents in the course. (HTH)
