Watch the Video
Please watch the short video where you will hear from both experts and ordinary families as they describe the importance of preparing your child for adolescence and share practical suggestions from their experiences.
Get The Kit
To help you get started, this kit includes a guide that offers practical tips and what we consider to be some of the best resources to help guide your son or daughter through upcoming changes as he or she progresses into adolescence.
To help make the process easier, we've included a two-part audio titled The Talk. Listen to the first part of the audio alone and then listen to the second part of the audio with your teen and discuss it together. We've also included a Frequently Asked Questions summary from parents of early adolescents.
