PEP I: Parenting Bootcamp

  • Held in Washington, DC, at Capitol Hill Presbyterian Church, this "bootcamp" teaches the 8-week PEP I curriculum over 1 Friday evening (6:30-9:30 pm) and 1 Saturday all-day meeting (8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.).
  • For parents of children age 5 to 12, who want to take PEP I, but don't have 8 weeks to devote. #18.1.104
  • Do you wonder how to raise your children to be responsible, respectful and trustworthy—all while getting dinner on the table? Do you worry about cyberspace, peer pressure and other facts of modern life? Parenting, while it brings much joy, is hard work. This class will make it easier and much more satisfying by giving you a sound framework for positive parenting and proven skills to correct whining, backtalk, defiance and the whole range of misbehavior. Learn how you can be closer and have more fun as a family while also motivating your children to be more cooperative, self-disciplined and successful.
