Chicago Parent Program
COMING SOON: THE CHICAGO PARENT PROGRAM
What is the Chicago Parent Program?
The Chicago Parent Program is a FREE 12-session group-based parenting program designed to strengthen parenting skills and communication and improve young children’s behavior. It will run every Tuesday from May 5, 2020- June 23, 2020.
How does the Chicago Parent Program work?
The FREE weekly 2-hour Chicago Parent Program sessions are delivered by trained group leaders guided by The Chicago Parent Program Group Leader Manual (2nd edition). Parents learn during highly interactive group sessions using video examples of parents managing common but often challenging parenting situations at home and in public, group discussion and problem-solving, role play, and practice activities.
What are the benefits of the Chicago Parent Program?
Parents who participated in the Chicago Parent Program had:
- Improvements in children’s behavior problems (based on independent observations, teacher ratings, and parent-report)
- Reductions in parents’ use of corporal punishment
- Increases in parents’ consistency with discipline
- Increases in parenting confidence
- Improvements in children’s behavior in the classroom based on teachers’ report of behavior problems
- Equivalent benefits compared to other evidence-based programs but greater parent satisfaction and at lower cost

MOYC CONFERENCE CHANGES
A MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR REGARDING THE UPCOMING APRIL 18, 2020 CONFERENCE:
Governor Hogan held a press conference on Monday, March 16, 2020 where he expanded the prohibition on gatherings to those of more than 50 people throughout the state of Maryland.
Therefore, “The Power of You: How to Appropriately Celebrate and Address Diversity” is CANCELLED. We are deeply saddened by this decision, however due to the current health crisis and ever changing restrictions, it’s in our best interest to not have a conference this year.
Mark your calendars to join us next year on Saturday, April 24, 2021 for our conference. It will be the same theme (How to Appropriately Celebrate and Address Diversity) location (Hilton Baltimore BWI Airport) and start time (7:00 am).
