ARK For Parents

ARK for Parents (and Caregivers)

Parents need practical, easy-to-use techniques and support in order to raise responsible, resilient, well-adjusted children.

 ARK for Parents (and Caregivers) combines cutting-edge self-esteem research with the very best in current parenting theory. Adults learn new parenting skills and increase their ability to give young people the unconditional love and nurture that allows their children to value themselves and to become joy-filled, productive members of society. ARK helps parents to address the practical aspects of parenting—dealing with topics such as effective discipline, homework, family meetings, bully-proofing, and instilling responsibility.

ARK for Parents (and Caregivers) teaches parents and other caregivers to relate to kids in caring, supportive ways that register a tremendous, life-changing impact upon children and their families.

ARK for Parents (and Caregivers) is not merely a course, it is a process formulated through research conducted in cooperation with the late Dr. Ron Lorimer of the University of Texas School of Public Health.

ARK is the approach of choice among leading educators and parents across the country.

Individual Study—“The Personal Journey Option”

ARK for Parents (and Caregivers) is created so that individual parents can easily implement the materials on their own, going through the process at their own pace as they incorporate ARK concepts and skills into their parenting practices. The program is for all parents who want to become even better at the most difficult and most important job in the world.

You may choose between ARK for Parents (and Caregivers), which is the secular version, or ARK for Christian Parents (and Churches), which is geared towards a faith-based parenting model. The manuals and videos are available in both English and Spanish.

Group Study Options

ARK for Parents (and Caregivers) groups are interactive, life-changing, and fun. They utilize a small group, peer-mentoring format where parents can support and encourage one another through their journey to be great parents. There are two group options from which to choose:

1. “The Group Study Option”

ARK for Parents (and Caregivers) may also by utilized in a small group, peer-mentoring format with other parents supporting you through your journey to become a better parent. You may choose to start an ARK group with a small group of other parents from your child's school, your community, or your friends.

Each class session consists of participants watching an 8-10 minute video lesson and then engaging in group discussion. Each class member is provided a copy of the ARK for Parents (and Caregivers) Manual which contains the text of the video lesson along with discussion and study questions.

The foundation course (Course I) is implemented through one-hour weekly meetings over an eight-week period. ARK groups that wish to convene for more than eight weeks are able to study Courses II, III, and IV, which provide materials for an additional eighteen sessions. Courses I, II, III, and IV are combined in one manual, with an accompanying video set.

2. “The Group Process Option”

For groups who want to go deeper into ARK’s concepts and materials, we recommend the third option, “The Group-Process" Option. ARK's group-process employs peer-mentoring, problem-solving, and small-group dynamics. It is a great option for schools, community service organizations, prisons, and juvenile justice venues.

This option requires having a group member trained as an ARK Facilitator who will receive specialized training in small-group techniques that will enable the group members to take quantum leaps forward in appropriating empathetic parenting skills.
