The parent support at Pro Deo Youth Center is designed to empower and encourage parents of teens. There is no denying that a parent is the number one influence in a teen’s life. However, Pro Deo realizes that in today’s ever-changing world, parents can sometimes use help navigating through the teenage years. At Pro Deo out goal is to be a parent’s ally who is on the front lines doing life with their teen.
As part of support for parents, we are always a phone call away. If you have questions about resources in our community, your teen, or how Pro Deo can walk through life with you and your family, please contact us. In our desire to equip you as a parent we will provide relevant programs focused on the teen years so families can enhance life at home and open up the lines of communication between parents/guardians and students. We also love to answer any questions parents have about teens, plug parents into resources in the community, and provide other ways to join parents through this journey.
We want parents to know our staff and our volunteers and for us to have a healthy relationship as we work together on behalf of your child. Besides a listening ear, we offer the following resources:
At Pro Deo we have several books that we would recommend to parents of teens. Everything from books on addiction, boundaries, discipline, etc. is available.
We have a database of local resources for specific crisis/situations to assist your family in whatever they are going through currently.
We can do referrals for local counselors, social service agencies, and other resources you may need.
