In our Because I Love You parent support group meetings, we help parents by offering support, guidance, and suggestions for solving problems with their children, from age 3 to 53. We are not counselors; rather we are concerned parents. Every one of us has faced situations that were beyond our control and were tearing our family apart. We have experienced the same or similar problems with our own families that you may be experiencing right now. We have “been there” and can relate. The Because I Love You program has helped our families, and we are now giving back in order to help others.
Our B.I.L.Y. Parent Support Group meetings are a safe, confidential place for you to come and receive help with family crises. Parents meet weekly in small groups, which provide the tools needed to regain control of your home, establish structure, and find the strength to develop new, cooperative family relationships. Working in conjunction with the Because I Love You Youth Support Group, our goal is reestablishing lines of communication and bringing the family together.
THERE ARE NO MEMBERSHIP REQUIREMENTS OR DUES.
OUR MEETINGS ARE FREE.
Working Together, We Can Make A Difference
Thoughts From Our Parents: What Does B.I.L.Y. Mean To Me?
“A sense of family, my group members really care.”
“A place to come to share my sadness, happiness, and experiences. B.I.L.Y. lifts my spirits when I feel like I am in hell.”
“Structure to deal with parental problems; support from the group.”
“A terrific support system where everyone is equal.”
“A chance to share, hear from others and to feel support from an extended, caring family.”
“Support, connections, solutions, support and friendships, not just for me but for the kids too.”
“It is what we receive from our fellow parents and what we give back to friends in crisis.”
“A place to share.”
“B.I.L.Y. is a support system that strengthens my parenting. I am a soft Dad and this is a liability. Learning firm, loving techniques with follow thru and consequences has been key.”
