Project READY (Realistic Education About the Days and Years) was a series of eight sessions designed for parents of pre-school and elementary school children. The project was designed to help prevent child abuse and neglect through a positive approach. A committee who represented participants and presenters carefully planned the topics and format. Speakers were interviewed and screened. A group of parents, professionals and high school seniors met to discuss effective parenting skills. As the group became stronger and more cohesive, the topics presented were of a more personal and emotional nature. The presentation and discussion of coping and effective parenting skills was designed to provide new acceptable behaviors in dealing with child rearing problems. It was believed a reduction in the incidence of child abuse would result. The document provides very detailed information outlining the establishment of the program. (DWH)
