for parents

From the Challenge/Success web site:

We know that parents want what is best for their kids, but knowing what’s best isn’t always easy. What many of us are doing right now, with the best of intentions, is focusing too much on short-term results instead of raising adults whose talents are fully realized, recognized, and valued in a 21st-century economy. Research tells us what children need is emotional support, parental supervision, adequate sleep, healthy eating habits, physical and intellectual challenges, resilience, and time to reflect, play, and plan. With our Challenge Success Parent Education Program, parents benefit from hearing university-based research translated into practical, everyday strategies that they can use to be better parents and raise kids who will thrive. We currently offer parents a number of live  and online classes and videos, school and community presentations and a series of parenting guidelines.
