​What Parent Up Is All About

Parenting is tough. It doesn’t get easier as children get older; every age presents a new challenge that we have to “level up” to meet. Parents are constantly learning and gaining new tools to better protect, teach, and guide their children.

 

That’s why we created Parent Up. We want to provide parents of tweens and teens a safe space to ask questions, to learn, and to network with other parents going through the same thing.

Parent Up: An Empowering Parenting Series, premiering in September 2020, will be presented virtually. Each session we will spotlight a new topic and host regional experts to help guide a 90-minute workshop to build knowledge and strengthen parenting skills.
