Parent Resources

Studies show parents are the biggest influencers of their child’s decision making.

Workshops

The Weller Center provides workshops for parents and caregivers to ensure that they, too, have the tools to help guide their children safely into adulthood. Popular topics are listed below. We can also customize a workshop to meet your needs.
  • Cyber-bullying/Internet safety
  • Adolescent depression awareness
  • Dating violence prevention and awareness
  • Puberty and reproduction: how to have “the talk”
  • Commonly abused drugs/recognizing and addressing addictive behaviors
  • Kids and stress

In the Workplace

Presented in the “Lunch & Learn” format or as informational talks, these single or multi-session meetings are designed to increase community knowledge about different areas of health, and can cover several subjects or concentrate on a particular concern.
