Operation Parent started when we, as parents, needed help and couldn’t find one central source for trustworthy, practical information on the tough day-to-day issues. From that, our organization was born. A platform sourced with the “must know” material for anyone raising teens and preteens, curated from leading experts and our own experiences as parents.
The culture is changing constantly and our goal at Operation Parent is to keep up with those changes and pass along the information parents need to know to keep their children healthy and safe. By providing this information, parents can quickly
- Raise their awareness and confidence
- Initiate meaningful conversations with their child
- Set age appropriate boundaries
- Be familiar with early warning signs
- Prevent addiction, bullying, suicide, violence and more
So what makes us unique?
It’s personal to us.
We’re parents and we’ve encountered many of these issues ourselves. We’re passionate about family and want to do all we can to help parents stay connected to their children during the challenging teen and preteen years.
We provide “ongoing” prevention education.
Prevention is a process…not an event. Prevention happens when parents are continually encouraged, educated and supported along their parenting journey. Our goal is to connect with parents of 4th graders and then walk alongside them until high school graduation.
We use technology to reach as many parents as possible.
Today’s busy parents need easy access to information. E-books, webinars and videos allow parents to access information privately and on their schedules. For those reasons, our prevention education is delivered using many different platforms:
- Printed material (our Parent handbooks for example)
- Live presentations
- Social Media
