She is set to graduate from that class in November 22, 2016.
Rhonda’s daughter Isabelle, is in Kindergarten. At the inception of her mother’s treatment, Isabelle was acting out and had behavioral issues. Case Manager and Rhonda were concerned with her behavior and signed her up for counseling at the Rocking Horse Center. Since Isabelle has been placed back in Rhonda’s care, she has improved behavior. Also, Isabella has been able to participate in school attentively and actively, since being back home with mom in drug-free environment. Rhonda and Isabelle are now in PCIT together and continue to improve with every counseling session.
Rhonda’s other daughter Allie, is in daycare. Allie was also struggling with acting out due to having very little structure and consistency in the home. Allie did not like the separation from mom and was glad to be placed back in her care. Now that Allie is home, her behavior has improved. Rhonda stated that with her taking parenting class she is able to learn new ways of interacting with her daughter to help with her behavior. Rhonda and Allie are currently working on learning the ABC’s, numbers 1-10 and learning to write her name.
