Life doesn't come with a set of instructions.

Take parenting, for example — perhaps the most rewarding and challenging project of all. Sometimes knowing just what to do and when you need to do it can be confusing, but take heart: it is possible to figure out, even without being an expert.

In the pages below you will find:

  • Tips from youth about how to start conversations with them
  • Conversation starters than can help you start talking with your kids
  • Information on the science of youth development and how it can help you better connect with young people

We hope these tools will help you build an even better relationship with the young person in your life.
