“[Presents] some solid ideas about working with parents, while also assuring teen viewers that they are not alone in their sometimes confusing pressures and concerns.”
“Families in Action/Active Parenting of Teens will help these teenagers learn communication and behavioral skills that will make a difference in their family life and community relationships.”
“When parents come into the program (Families in Action/Active Parenting of Teens), they are closed up and think they are alone in the problems they are having with their child. But as we watch the videos and discuss the situations, the moms and dads start opening up. They begin looking at situations from other points of view and ultimately they grow and develop new ways of parenting their children.”
“...we hear the kids saying, Now my mom and dad are beginning to understand how I think and that Im not always wrong. And the kids begin seeing that each parent is also an individual person dealing every day with many responsibilities and stressful situations at home and at work.”
