Research confirms that children between and ages of 7-12 need active, involved parents! Children who enjoy a close relationship with their family are less likely to experiment with drugs, alcohol, or engage in other high risk behaviours.
My Tween and Me is a 4 week parenting program that helps parents build strong relationships with their preteens.
