There’s no denying it. Parents and teens are often at odds—but it doesn’t have to be that way. When parents and teens learn together, they will have a common language and skills for a smoother ride through adolescence. This evidence-based parenting program gives families critical tools for the challenging teen years: communication, conflict resolution, encouragement, and more. Plus powerful information about preventing problems with drugs, alcohol, sex, and violence. Combining entertaining video, group discussion, and activities, the program will teach both teens and parents how to: communicate without fighting, work through power struggles, understand each other’s goals, avoid the scary risks of adolescence (including drugs, alcohol, sex and violence) and enjoy the wonderful journey to adulthood—together! This is a program that parents sign up for and facilitate the attendance of their teen. Please do not give us your teen’s contact information, parent/guardian participation is required.
