Sometimes children and youth benefit the most when their parents and/or caregivers enhance their own skills in managing challenging behaviour. For this reason, parenting programs may be the most appropriate option for families who are in need of support.

Children’s Centre Thunder Bay (CCTB) offers a wide range of programming for parents, caregivers, and families to help them develop essential knowledge and the skills to meet the needs of the children and youth in their care.

These programs for parents and caregivers may include brief or long-term services. Some are offered within a group setting, while others are offered individually. Other services may also be available within the home setting.
