Mutual Support Groups 
   Our free weekly Parents Anonymous® groups are parent-driven. Trained facilitators partner with parents to determine the content and pace of the  group meetings.  As parents  discuss problems and successes, fellow group members and the faci-litator listen, encourage   and help identify the behaviors and child development issues at work. Parents develop their own solutions and serve as role models for other parents. In our groups, parents are resources to each other, and the facilitator is a link to help find other community resources. Go to Find a Group to locate a group in your South Carolina county.

Children and Youth Program 
    A companion program to the Parents Anonymous® Mutual Support Group, the Parents Anonymous® Children and Youth Program provides a  safe environment in which children can  experience nurturing interactions with adults and develop healthy social skills. 
     In an atmosphere of age–appropriate play and activity, children are encouraged to explore healthy expressions of emotion, develop problem-solving skills, and become leaders in their community.
