Court may order education or counseling

(1)(a) The court may order the parent or guardian to participate in any educational or counseling programs as are reasonably directed toward improvement of parenting skills and the ability of the parent to supervise the youth offender if the court finds:

(A) That a deficiency in parenting skills has significantly contributed to the circumstances bringing the youth offender within the jurisdiction of the court; and

(B) That participation would be consistent with the best interests of the youth offender.

(b) The programs may include, but need not be limited to, parenting classes.

(c) The court may order such participation with the youth offender or separately.

(2) As an alternative to a contempt proceeding, the court may require a parent or guardian to pay a specific sum not to exceed $1,000 for a violation by the parent or guardian of an order under subsection (1) of this section.

(3) The court may not revoke a youth offender’s probation solely because of a failure of the youth offender’s parent or guardian to comply with an order under subsection (1) of this section. [1993 c.33 §254; 1995 c.592 §2; 2003 c.396 §130]
