There's no denying it. Parents and teens are often at odds—but it doesn't have to be that way. When parents and teens learn together, they will have a common language and skills for a smoother ride through adolescence.
Families in Action is a lively program that gives families critical tools for the challenging teen years: communication, conflict resolution, encouragement, and more. Plus powerful information about preventing problems with drugs, alcohol, sex, and violence.
This class is offered as a parent only class (Active Parenting Teens), and a class for parents & teens together (Families in Action)
