Programs for Parents and Guardians

HiTops supports and respects a parent or guardian’s right and responsibility to teach family, cultural and religious values to their children. Parents often feel ill-equipped to directly address adolescent risk behavior and can benefit from sharing their fears, concerns and needs with other parents. Participants will learn strategies to enhance parent-child communication about sexual health, relationships, limit setting and decision-making. Parents will gain skills to help their children navigate the mixed and confusing messages that come from the sex-saturated media culture in which our youth are raised.

HiTOPS offers a variety of programs and seminars for teens, parents and teachers – all designed by health educators and clinicians who specialize in helping young people make responsible decisions. Learn more about HiTops’ programs for Parents and Guardians by clicking the descriptions below:
