"It takes a village to raise a child."
We are the village.
Parents. Grandparents. Family. Mentors. Professionals.
Supporting each other. Learning. Growing. Empowering adults, empowering t(w)eens.
The more supported & knowledgeable the adults feel, the more we can connect with and advocate for our t(w)eens. We can create happier relationships. Less stress. More fun & laughter. And ultimately, we will lose fewer kids to suicide.
The ParenT(w)een Village
Community & connection for parents & family
"I just wish I had someone to talk to."
That's what started our entire movement.
We are a judgment-free zone where you can connect with other parents and professionals to support each other and your t(w)eens.
"I appreciate so many things about the sense of community of The ParenT(w)een Connection. From the other parents sharing their experiences, the great links to community services, and the advice from like-minded parents, it's just an awesome and needed resource!" ~JMS
Trusted Expert Network
Community & connection for professionals who support t(w)eens and families
Where do parents go to find the professionals who can support them and their t(w)eens? Usually, to the doctor or the guidance counselor. Sometimes, those folks know where to send parents.
And when they don't, parents know that The ParenT(w)een Connection has a listing of professionals who can support them and their kids.
"Being part of the ParenT(w)een Connection Trusted Expert Network has not only given me a network of families to share my knowledge with, but also a network of professionals to draw from. Their expertise in various fields related to teen health and academics has been a wealth of knowledge for myself, my team, and clients. Thank you Clarissa for creating this network!"

Helping to bridge the financial gap
We've created community for families.
We've created community for the professionals who support families.
We've introduced them to each other.
But what about the families who can't afford the support the professionals provide?
"Can't wait to see what amazing opportunities you'll provide and learn more about what's coming next."
"Support is needed.like.never before."
"You are truly making the world a better place!"
