Helping Empower Action, Leadership, Teamwork, and Health in our Youth

Guiding Good Choices workshop for parents with pre-teens and teenagers

Did you know that according to the 2014 Healthy Youth Survey that students feel their families could improve communication. How can we earn an A in communication skills? The teen years are so important to build communication that we offer a workshop starting this fall to help build those skills.  Registration is open now and the workshop series begins October 25th.

The goal of the Guiding Good Choices program is to teach parents of preteens and younger adolescents the skills they need to improve family communication and family bonding. The program draws on extensive research that demonstrates the critical importance of bonding in reducing or inhibiting adolescent participation in antisocial behaviors. 

During the course of the Guiding Good Choices program, parents will learn specific strategies to help their children avoid troublesome adolescent problem behaviors, and develop into healthy adults. Parents will learn to set clear family guidelines on drugs, as well as learn and practice skills to strengthen family bonds, help their children develop healthy behaviors, and increase children's involvement in the family.
