The Parent Toolkit provides practical information to help parents navigate topics and situations that all families face, including ones that are hard to talk about. Open, honest parent-child communication is critical in helping children prepare for social challenges they are likely to encounter. We hear from parents frequently that they feel unprepared to discuss certain topics with their children. We’re here to help!
We asked groups of parents to think back to their adolescence, and we put this question to them: What information do you wish you had learned from your parents or other trusted adults about friends, relationships, love, sex, peer pressure, setting goals, or growing up in general?
GCAPP’s Parent Toolkit provides practical information to help parents navigate topics and situations that all families face, especially the ones that are thorny, delicate, and complicated.
