YES, parents are expected to attend the class with their child or children. The information presented and discussed during the class is intended to educate and inform both juveniles and parents in attendance. One of the most important aspects of the class is to provide full opportunity for people in attendance to ask questions and help ease any anxiety about what might happen next after their child has had contact with the police. We believe it is very important that the child and parent hear the same information at the same time. The majority of parents who attend the class are glad they attended and have expressed that the class was well worth their time.
NOTE: Again, the reason why people are attending the class IS NOT mentioned or discussed in this open public setting!
