How can ARK help my family?
Parents need practical, easy-to-use techniques and support in order to raise responsible, resilient, well-adjusted children.
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. The program is for great parents who want to do an even better job at the most important and most difficult job in the world. It is the program of choice among leading educators, churches, and parents across the country.
ARK combines cutting-edge self-esteem research with the very best in current parenting theory. The result is an environment in which adults can learn new parenting skills and can increase their ability to give young people the love and the nurture that allows children to value themselves and 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.
There are three study options for ARK for Parents (and Caregivers).
- Individual parents are able to use the ARK materials on their own, going through the process at their own pace as they incorporate ARK concepts and skills into their parenting practices (the "Personal Journey" Option). (click on Store)
- The "Group-Study" Option is widely used as an exciting, practical parenting program in churches, schools, and community centers. (click on Store)
- For groups who want to go deeper into the concepts and materials, there is a third option, the "Group-Process" Option. ARK's group-process employs peer-mentoring, problem-solving group dynamics, and having a group member trained as an ARK Facilitator can help you get the most out of your meetings. Contact us at (281) 537-1301 or ARK@thearkgroup.com to get information about Facilitator training.
You may choose between ARK for Parents (and Caregivers), which is not faith-based, or ARK for Christian Parents, which is a faith-based parenting model.
