Jeff Mastick, BA (Parent Educator)
Working with kids and their families has been a passion of mine for many years. My experience began working as a youth minister in a church setting. I was able to help parents and kids as they struggled with challenges of adolescence and help to ease the stress of those years of adjustment. This experience also provided me with a greater understanding of thinking of kids and their parents.
My other experiences include working with families who are adjusting to the placement of a relative child in their home and connecting them with the help they need to meet this challenge. I have also had the opportunity to facilitate groups where parents, children, and relatives have a part in the care of a child and decisions must be made for the best interests of the child.
I hold a Bachelor's degree in Secondary Education from Lubbock Christian University. I have been married to my wonderful wife for 13 years and have two precious children. I am excited to be a Love and Logic trainer because I believe in the value of learning new skills so that parents and kids can have a positive and strong relationship.
