In today’s society, where children seem to become adults overnight and often make decisions about drugs, sexuality and violence before they understand the consequences, a parent’s job is more important than ever.
Active Parenting of Teens is an interactive video and discussion program listed by SAMHSA’s National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices. Through the program’s six workshops, the group will be introduced to the biggest struggles facing teens today, including sexual behavior, violence and substance abuse, and learn how to reduce the risks.
Parents will learn how to open up the lines of communication, encourage cooperation, promote responsibility and discipline effectively. The program provides indispensable techniques for overcoming obstacles that will bring happiness and harmony into every home. Insight about other important issues such as teens online, bullying and depression also will be addressed.
