Baltimore, MD, May 01, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Social worker, Gregory Harden, has launched a business that helps African-American parents find solutions to their most challenging teenage behaviors. The company, Black Parents In Charge, offers classes, coaching, and written materials that teach parents effective ways of changing their teenager’s behavior. Black Parents In Charge has a new website, www.blackparentsincharge.com, where parents can go to find the latest information, tips, and advice.
African-American parents all over America are struggling with teenagers that they cannot seem to handle. These out-of-control teenagers frequently engage in risky, dangerous, inappropriate, or illegal behaviors. As a result, Black parents of out-of-control teenagers constantly worry that, one day soon, their sons and daughters will wind up in jail, in a hospital, or in a morgue. These parents are often at their wits end and simply want help dealing with their teenager’s misbehavior. Yet, they have few places to turn.
While there are many programs and books available to help parents raise teenagers, there are very few targeted to African-American parents of teenagers. Even fewer programs are available for Black parents dealing with tough teenagers.
Because African-American parents and teenagers are unique and face special challenges, African-American parents need culturally-specific training and resources. Parenting programs and resources that do not address or respect issues and needs specific to African-American parents and teenagers will not be as helpful as they could be.
“Black parents now have a place to turn that understands and is dedicated to them, their teenagers, and their unique needs,” says Gregory Harden, founder and operator of Black Parents In Charge.
Black Parents In Charge was created to serve the needs of decent, hard-working African-American parents who want to help their teenagers turn their lives around. According to Mr. Harden, the mission of this company is to help Black youth succeed. He believes that providing parents with information, support, and encouragement is the key to helping wayward Black youth.
Mr. Harden suggested that Black Parents In Charge also serves a bigger purpose. “It’s not just about helping Black parents or Black youth,” says Mr. Harden. “It’s about empowering Black families, Black communities, and African-Americans in general. We simply cannot control our destinies as a people if we can’t even control our children. I created this company to help parents get control of their teenagers once and for all.”
Gregory Harden is a licensed social worker in Maryland. He has over 15 years working with and helping troubled youth and their families.
