Return To Succes StoriesRoger B and The Parenting Place
Roger B. was a parent who started classes at The Parenting Place in the summer quarter of 2006. Roger had been mandated by Child Protective Services to take classes with us for several months before he actually attended his first class. He told us that many things got in the way of completing this requirement. By the time he started classes, he understood that he could very well lose his daughter unless he changed some of his behaviors. He was also aware that he was going to have to work hard to keep his young daughter.

Though he was unable to attend the first two classes of the course, Roger started “Becoming a Love & Logic Parent.” He came every week and participated in class more as the weeks passed. He was referred to other needed resources within KCR. He became very proactive, he went to his court dates, dealt with set backs, and continued his quest to gain custody of his daughter. He wanted more information to better educate himself about what he could do to better understand his daughter’s development and issues she was facing. It was frustrating for him to not have a say in what was happening to his child while she was in foster care.

Nearly one year later in 2007, Roger finished his last CPS required class. He has gone from supervised visits with his daughter to having his first overnight visit with her in his home. He beamed a giant smile when telling us he may soon be the primary caretaker for his daughter. He knows that single parenting will not be easy, and that he also has the support of family, friends, and The Parenting Place.
