These eight learning modules were prepared for parents participating in Brevard Community College's Project BEST-PAL (Basic Education Skills Through-Parenting Affective Learning), which was designed for low socioeconomic parents who are in need of an opportunity to explore effective parenting. First, materials for the BEST-PAL volunteer sponsors are presented, explaining how to use the learning modules most effectively. Next, the eight modules, written on a 2nd-3rd grade reading level, cover the following topics: (1) communication; (2) love and affection; (3) parents as role models; (4) coping with school; (5) discipline; (6) family crisis: money and loss of job, or drugs and alcohol; (7) problem solving; and (8) sex education. Each module includes a list of words to know and their meanings, exercises and readings relevant to the topic, a list of things to remember, an outline on which the parent can develop a plan for a change, and assignments to be completed at home.
