Children with behavioral problems are more likely to drop out of school, to abuse drugs and to go to jail. In New York City alone 10,000 students are suspended from school each year, mostly for aggressive or violent behaviors. ParentCorps' 26-week parenting program decreases aggressive behavior in preschoolers, preventing behavioral problems before they become ingrained causing irreparable consequences for the child and society at large.
