Parenting Class Series at Monta Vista High School

The 2017 Fall Parenting Class series meets on Wednesdays from September 27, 2017 through November 8, 2017.

There are 7 sessions in this series. The only cost is the $15 book.

Time: 5:30pm - 7:00pm. Location: MVHS Library.

Please register by emailing Richard Prinz at Richard_Prinz@fuhsd.org or call him at 366-7638. Richard welcomes your questions.

The classes are based on the STEP program. STEP stands for Systematic Training for Effective Parenting. This program is specifically geared for teens and has proven helpful to many. Parenting styles are discussed as well as the effects on you and your child regarding the parenting style that is used.

Topics include

  • Understanding your teen
  • emotions (yours and theirs)
  • encouragement
  • identifying whose problem is it--yours or your teens
  • communication (listening, expressing your feelings)
  • exploring with your teen alternative ways of thinking and behaving, and discipline (developing responsibility).

Participants need to come to all or the majority of all classes. There will be homework and teens will also be in attendance. 


Course Book: STEP: Parenting Teenagers, copyright 1998, by Dinkmeyer and McKay. STEP Publishers. This book is required. Please purchase it and read the first chapter prior to the first class. I will have copies available for sale a week before the first class.


Richard Prinz is the Student Advocate (School Therapist) at MVHS and is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.
