Information on the development and implementation of a parent education project in the Campbell Union School District (California) is presented. The project, consisting of a series of parent workshops at school sites, is described as an opportunity for parents to share their 6th, 7th, or 8th grade child's learning experience in a family life education course through discussion of such topics as the material presented in the child's class, student interest and response to the materials, and parent follow-through at home, particularly in relation to psycho-sexual development concerns. Information included in this publication covers: (1) highlights of the first planning session of the nine participating teachers; (2) techniques used by the teachers in getting the first parent meeting off to a good start; (3) a list of the films used in the class; (4) some effective group dynamics techniques used with the parents; (5) a list of the topics discussed in the course; and (6) a list of the topics discussed with the parents.
