The Implementation of a Parent Effectiveness Training Program to Develop Effective Parenting Skills.
Goetaski, Janet E.
This study addressed the need to encourage more parental involvement in children's educational, social, and emotional needs. Sixty parents of elementary school children responded to a survey regarding their interest in attending a systematically designed program entitled, "Parent Effectiveness Training". Findings indicated a parental need and desire for the program. As a result of these findings, eight weekly sessions (of 3 hours each) of parent training were implemented with four goals: (1) parental interest in having the meetings continued; (2) the establishment of a parental network of communication; (3) improved home school communication; and (4) improved parental attendance at school functions. A second survey, following completion of the program, indicated that the four goals of the program had been satisfied. Appended are the cover letter to parents, parent questionnaire, program attendance record, scoring scale for overall survey of program, notification to parents of program, letter of acceptance for program, letter of rejection, Gazetter Leader Newspaper article, and a Star and Wave Newspaper article.
