This chapter evaluates family-based prevention programs or programs that target risk factors for delinquency and later offending that are associated with the family, such as poor child-rearing, poor parental supervision, and inconsistent or harsh discipline. These programs are usually delivered by health professionals such as nurses and they are typically less behavioural, mainly providing advice and guidance to parents or general parent education. The findings reveal that parent education plus daycare services and parent management training are effective in preventing delinquency and later offending.
