LIVINGSTON, NJ — The Livingston Parent Self-Help Support Group (LPSHSG) is officially disbanding in November 2019 after more than 35 years of helping local parents who experience challenges with their children.

Since the early 1980s, the LPSHSG met every Tuesday to host a free program for anyone in need of its services. Facilitated by parents who experienced problems with parenting challenging children, the goal of this non-professional, self-help support group was “to give parents support and help them to learn new parenting skills so that they can give their child the best chance to lead a healthy, productive and responsible life.”

Those involved with LPSHSG remind residents that support groups are crucial in many family situations and urge parents with challenging children to join one. 

Upon ending this service, group leaders said they feel extremely fortunate and grateful to have been able to help so many families in and around Livingston.
