There are countless ways you can join Operation Parent in helping preteens and teens make better choices for the future. Check out the activities we’ve got on the horizon, and learn more about how you can get involved.
With the push-me, pull-you nature of adolescence, how can parents feel confident that they are doing what they can to support their teens to create healthy relationships, work hard in school, and develop valuable life skills while resisting the high level risks they are exposed to? In the upcoming webinar, Jennifer Miller, M.Ed. will discuss how parents can better understand the developmental changes their children are undergoing to extend their empathy and patience. And we’ll dive into specific ways in which parents can act and react with social and emotional intelligence to grow their trusting relationship and model and cultivate the skills our teens need to become healthy, responsible, and independent.
