The Chicago Parent Program (CPP) is a parenting program created for parents with children ages two through eight. CPP focuses on reducing challenging behaviors in children by strengthening parenting skills and confidence. The program consists of 12 sessions and is conducted through weekly meetings, videos, and group discussions.
The Chicago Parent Program reduces parents’ use of physical punishment, increases parenting confidence, strengthens parent-to-parent connections, and increases knowledge of children’s social-emotional development and well-being. For children, CPP improves behavioral and emotional regulation, peer relationships, and academic outcomes.
