Each of us can play a role in helping to support healthy relationships in our family and community by starting a conversation with our youth today. Scroll down for useful tools.
Healthy Relationships PARENT Toolkit
Talking to a child or teen about relationships can be awkward and will probably include uncomfortable moments for both child and parent. However, these conversations are vital to providing necessary information and guidance to your child.
Talking about healthy versus unhealthy behaviors can be incorporated into your everyday life; utilizing TV shows, media, conversations, and other teachable moments can help start conversations. This toolkit is designed to give you useful tools and information you can use to start these conversations at every age of your child’s development.
