Training Ohio's Parents for Success (TOPS).
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Educational Services.
The Training Ohio's Parents for Success (TOPS) program aims to increase parents' involvement in the education of their children and increase the linkages between home and school. This resource guide was developed to assist school districts in the process of providing materials and trainers to all school districts in Ohio. This resource guide is intended to help trainers develop parent-training programs. It presents a separate section on each of the three important areas of parent involvement, adult learning, and self-esteem and then a module on each of the seven TOPS content areas: understanding human growth and development; communication between the child and the parent and/or family; discipline; health and nutrition; problem solving and decision making; study skills; and access to support systems. Each content area lists key concepts at the beginning of the module. Each key concept page has an outcome statement, a brief introduction to the topic, and examples of activities that a trainer could use in parent training sessions. Additional resources will be found following the key concepts in each module. Many of these materials are written for parents and may be used as handouts or as background information for the trainers. (DR)
