Parents whose children were experiencing behavioral problems at a southwestern U.S. elementary school were at a loss as to how to effectively manage their children's behavior both in and out of home. The effect of a lack of discipline transcended into the classroom which ultimately disrupted the learning environment. This practicum created a support group for these parents, and was designed to educate parents on effective discipline strategies that would enable them to facilitate behavior modification without starting a negative discipline cycle. The project entailed an 8-month program during which parents shared concerns, problems, and solutions with one another. The goal of the project was to help parents learn to teach their children how to behave in a socially acceptable manner both in and out of the classroom. At the end of the project, the majority of the parents had implemented the new strategies with some degree of success. All the parents reacted positively to the support group and testified to feeling empowered to handle their children's behavior more effectively.
