Families will learn how to show love while setting limits, how to listen to your child and how to help family members show appreciation to each other.

The program is proven to increase academic success in youth, delay the onset of adolescent substance use, increase the resistance to peer pressure in youth, and strengthen parent/youth communication skills.
