Workshops Build Skills, Confidence for Caregivers Helping Students Through Turbulent Times!

"Just wanted to let you know that our collaborative work with parents and caregivers has been highlighted in UC San Diego this week. To each of you--and all the parents, kinship care providers, siblings, uncles, aunts, stepparents, grandparents, and all who participated--you make this program what it is, serving as inspiration and raison d'etre for our work together. Thank you. You are all such bright stars in our constellation and the driving force behind these efforts.

We are just getting started!"

AFS Mission

Assertive Family Solutions strives to provide healthy, happy, loving environments for the youth in our community. Our key goal is to identify necessary resources to help them develop to their full potential. We offer training techniques that will assist parents, tutors, and grandparents in raising children in non-traditional settings. 

The seeds we plant today will produce respectful, responsible, and productive children for the future.

Parenting Classes

Being a parent is the most important job we will ever have; it impacts us and our children for their entire life span. Important as it is, there are very few schools or universities that offer courses on how to be a good parent in what can be adverse circumstances. We learn as we go, or we fall back onto old practices which may or may not be appropriate. 

When we decide to form a family, some members may come from different backgrounds and so then we find ourselves encountering bumps on the road. 


Every family is different and has its own personality, rhythm, values, and beliefs; there's not one single system of parenting that will fit all. So we listen to you and observe your interactions. Then we assess and give you feedback about what we think might be helpful for your particular circumstances. 

Our Parenting and Co-Parenting Classes are now court-approved in San Diego, CA.

All classes can be delivered after work hours and/or on weekends. We tailor services to each client's needs according to the court order. Class lengths and topics vary.  Since the advent of COVID-19, we have added ZOOM classes for your  convenience.


Wrap Around Services for Family Reunification

AFS helps families understand the relational differences that interfere with the upbringing of their children's well being  and development.                                                    

AFS assists parents in understanding the circumstances behind the formation of their new family. It also helps the family set ground rules in order to facilitate peace in their home environment.


AFS helps divorced or separated cou​ples come to an agreement in determining what is best for their children.​

Individual and in person sessions​ by Zoom will be available until meeting sites reopen.

Right now we are offering Parenting and Co-Parenting classes at the same time.

And the Students receive a certificate for both classes.
