Beatitude House: Making a difference

WARREN — A House of Blessing Warren began offering a new program in February for their residents called the Strengthening Families Program.

The program will help parents learn nurturing skills that support their children, teach parents how to effectively discipline and guide their youth, teach children skills to better deal with stress and peer pressure, and teach positive communication skills between family members.

The program is delivered in seven sessions with parents and youths meeting in separate groups for the first hour and then together as families in the second hour.

Parent sessions focus on presentations, role playing, group discussions and other skills building activities.

Youth sessions focus on group discussions, group skill practice, and social bonding activities.

Family sessions use games and projects to increase family bonding, build positive communication skills, and facilitate learning to solve problems together.
