From KidsMatter: Parents Matter, Too
ParentsMatterToo is a network of connected parents committed to providing nonjudgmental opportunities to share struggles, provide support, and ultimately strengthen the fabric of our families and community. We believe in building resilient kids and families who say NO to destructive behaviors and YES to endless possibilities. This program offers parents a safe environment to discuss at-risk situations and be strengthened to challenge our children’s choices about social issues, drugs and alcohol. We do that through:
1. The Interactive Website, ParentsMatterToo, with answers from local professionals and links to the most trusted national experts. This knowledge empowers parents to be the strong positive influence their children need.
2. Conversation Circles (see schedule below), guided small groups, held throughout the community. Conversation Circles are opportunities for parents to share life experiences, discuss parenting situations, and gain knowledge and support.
3. Speakers providing expert information to help parents become knowledgeable and influential, gaining skills they need to effectively challenge our children’s choices.
