About the Behaviour Program


Confident Parents: Thriving Kids – Behaviour Program is a skill-building program designed to help parents support their children aged 3–12 who are experiencing mild to moderate behaviour challenges. 

You’ll learn effective skills and strategies to empower you and your child to manage behaviour challenges and strengthen your role as a parent through a series of workbooks and activities, supported by 6 to 14 weekly coaching sessions by phone. Coaching sessions can be scheduled during day, evening and weekend hours. 

Confident Parents: Thriving Kids – Behaviour Program is based on the Parent Management Training Oregon (PMTO) model which is an evidence-based program proven to prevent, reduce, or reverse mild to moderate behaviour problems in children ages 3–12.

The program is available at no cost to parents and caregivers across BC, through referral from a physician or nurse practitioner.
