MYCP Program


Do you have young children aged 2-7 years, whose behaviour is difficult to manage?



If so, you may be interested in the 
Management of Young Children Program (MYCP)

This program has been developed and facilitated by staff from Education Qld. 

What is MYCP?
MYCP is an individual parenting 
skills training and support program 
for parents of children with difficult 
behaviour.
It is a practical approach aimed at 
restoring a parent-child relationship
which has become imbalanced because 
the child seeks control 
through oppositional behaviour. 
The aim of the program is that the 
parent (with some support) is able to 
master skills in child management 
which will restore a loving and functional 
relationship.

Who will benefit?
·  Young children who interpret parental 
requests as a trigger for defiant 
behaviour (for example: refusing, 
ignoring, tantrums).
·  Young children who appear to require 
parental attention to an excessive 
degree.
·  Children with special needs are very 
welcome.
·  Parents who are not coping, are 
worn out or feeling inadequate.

What are the likely outcomes?
·  Reduction in the child’s oppositional 
behaviour.
·  Reduction in parent reinforcement 
of oppositional behaviour.
·  Increase in effectiveness of parent 
directions.
·  Increase in positive interaction, 
praise and task completion.
·  Less stress
