“With so many young lives involved, it is hard to put a price tag on how important this is. This program for parents was successful in increasing parents’ knowledge and confidence in discussing Internet safety, teen relationships and substance abuse with their teens.”
- Dan J., Ph.D.
“My middle school daughters have gotten several presentations from a certified SRO teaching this program, and he has given them good and vital information in a way that is serious but appropriate. I am grateful that I am not on this parenting journey alone and have amazing resources to support my family.”
- Ellery V., parent
“I am the parent who should have been at this class three years ago, and have now learned to communicate with my daughter more effectively. I know there are unlimited possibilities and opportunities of our modern digital world, but what I see is vulnerability and what I feel is fear. This program is so informative, and I encourage everyone to spend the time learning this information that could possibly save their child’s valuable mind.”
- Amy S., parent
