“Families in Action/Active Parenting of Teens will help these teenagers learn communication and behavioral skills that will make a difference in their family life and community relationships.”
“When parents come into the program (Families in Action/Active Parenting of Teens), they are closed up and think they are alone in the problems they are having with their child. But as we watch the videos and discuss the situations, the moms and dads start opening up. They begin looking at situations from other points of view and ultimately they grow and develop new ways of parenting their children.”
“It has been a joy to facilitate Active Parenting of Teens... Just wanted you to know that this is one of the best parent programs I have seen and I think many parents will benefit...”
“I have had several people ask me about my parenting skills. This is due to my wonderful daughter... This wasn’t always the case... I began experiencing problems that I wasn’t prepared to handle... I truly believe that implementing the techniques of your Active Parenting of Teens program saved both of us... I felt that I had the skills to deal with parenting a teen and that we had set a good foundation for mutual success... Thank you for your contribution to our success and happiness.”
