Group Name: HOPE – Helping Other Parents Everywhere
Description: At HOPE we believe that given knowledge, tools and support, parents who are troubled by the behaviours of their teen or adult children can gain the skills and strength to change their family dynamics. At HOPE, our Parent Support Group assists parents, like you, whose life is being negatively affected because of our children’s disruptive behaviour. We are a self-help group of parents who have come together to assist each other in making the personal changes that are necessary to be more effective in dealing with our problems. We are a gathering of parents only, here to give you suggestions that have worked for us and offer you HOPE, respect and support in a non-blaming, safe environment. Our children are NOT involved in our weekly meetings.
We have been providing support to parents in our community for almost fifteen years. To date, HOPE (Helping Other Parents Everywhere) has over 300 members in the Toronto and Durham areas – all parents or guardians who have, or have had acting out youth.
