STEP Course

Tags:  janeg@spx.org

Do you want to improve interactions with your teen? Ever wondered how to avoid power struggles? Do you struggle with establishing effective and meaningful discipline strategies in your household? 

Systematic Training for Effective Parenting (STEP) is the most widely researched and implemented parenting program in the United States. Based on the work of Alfred Adler and Rudolf Dreikurs, STEP trains parents on improving the effectiveness of interactions with their children. The first STEP group was held in America in 1976 and has since then enjoyed widespread popularity in schools, hospitals and clinics and organizations offering assistance to parents and educators. This program is systematic in that each successive week includes strategies and skills that are built upon learning from previous weeks.

The course is designed to teach participants about themselves and how to improve their relationships with children, family members, coworkers, strangers, everyone – guaranteed! Learn valuable lessons including: two essential directives for parenting; what style of parenting you have adopted – and how it could be hindering the relationships you have with your children; why praising rather than encouraging your child may send the wrong message; and why discipline is more effective than punishment.

Top Pitfalls of Freshman Year 

  1. Not taking 9th grade academics seriously/believing freshman year doesn't really count and you can make up for it later - GPA foundation
  2. Not getting involved in something/no extracurricular activities
  3. Not taking risk to forge relationships with classmates/waiting for others to approach you
  4. Not forging relationships with important adults in your life
  5. Not thinking about the future (more than tomorrow or next week!)
  6. Getting behind in assignments--homework or makeup work from absences multiply quickly!
  7. Not asking for help (classmates, Lion Leaders, teachers, counselors, administrators)
  8. Engaging in risky behavior
  9. Limiting yourself to one group or clique
