Staying Connected with Your Teen®
A Families That Care® Program

Because parents matter, and so do their teens!

For parents of teens ages 12-17

(formerly known as the Parents Who Care program)

Channing Bete Company brings you the Staying Connected with Your Teen program, a proven-effective, science-based series of video- and workshop-based modules that get parents and teens working together to enhance communication and family management practices and decrease conflict.

The Staying Connected with Your Teen program is:

  • research based -- More and more research is demonstrating that one of the most critical factors in ensuring the well-being of today's adolescents is parent involvement. The Staying Connected with Your Teen program shows parents how to improve their family management practices and strengthen the bonds between them and their children, resulting in substance abuse prevention, violence prevention, and positive character development.
  • proven effective -- In a controlled study of the Staying Connected with Your Teen program (formerly known as Parents Who Care), participant families have shown statistically significant improvement in family discipline practices, supervision skills, and bonding, and significantly reduced family attitudes favorable to antisocial behaviors.
  • flexible -- The program may be implemented as either a traditional workshop series or a take-home self-study program.
  • recognized as "Effective" by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention's Model Programs Guide.
