Systematic Training for Effective Parenting
Program Overview
This program provides skills training for parents dealing with frequently encountered challenges with their children. Systematic Training for Effective Parenting or STEP promotes a more participatory family structure by fostering responsibility, independence, and competence in children; improving communication between parents and children; and helping children learn from the natural and logical consequences of their own choices.

The Smithtown Youth Bureau offers three versions of STEP:
  • Early Childhood STEP for parents of children up to age 6
  • STEP for parents of children ages 6 through 12
  • STEP / Teen for parents of teens
