As a parent, are you concerned about your child reverting back to old negative behaviors while at home on break? Are you concerned about your student losing ground during the breaks or holidays? If so, PRN for Families may be able to assist you. We offer a customized package of services designed for families of students attending traditional or non-traditional boarding schools that need additional support over the break or holiday season.
During school holidays and breaks many students return home to their families from college, boarding school, or just from the local high school or middle school. While spending time with family is important, it can often be challenging as a result of complex family dynamics and chemistry between family members. That is why PRN for Families offers the Home from School package of services–a program for students and families in this situation that require an extra level of support.
We provide a stepping-stone to enable a smooth transition during this process. We work with the whole family system to provide tools and support necessary for a successful emancipation. The program is structured with a high level of accountability, yet community-based, which means we go into the community versus the client going outside to receive the services. It is customized to meet the needs of the client, and specifically designed for clients who have exhausted the more traditional services.
