Equipping Parents of Teens
- Parents Matter!
IMPACT's curricula are key to reaching students with the crucial messages of character building, healthy-decision making, goal setting and sexual risk avoidance. However, parents can and should be the primary educators of their children when it comes to sexuality and character. Our parent programs equip parents with useful tools to discuss some of the difficult issues and pressures their children face in today's society.
Parents have incredible power to influence their children's lives in positive ways. According to a recent poll, teens list their parents as their number one role models (Junior Achievement/Harris Interactive Poll; 2003).
A study of 12,000 adolescents showed that children whose parents held higher expectations for them had higher school achievement and fewer risk taking behaviors. Also, children whose parents disapproved of early sexual activity postponed sexual intercourse. - American Medical Association
