“The challenge of successfully ushering children through their teen years has always been among parents’ hardest-won achievements. But in today’s society, where children seem to become adults overnight, and where they often make decisions about drugs, sexuality, and violence before they understand the consequences, a parent’s job is more important than ever.” In this course, we will discuss: “methods of respectful discipline, skills for clear, honest communication, concrete strategies to prevent risky behavior, how to be an encouraging parent…plus insight into important issues such as teens online, bullying, and depression.” This curriculum is approved by the Department of Children and Families and is Living Credit eligible.
