PARENTS, WELCOME TO THE PARENT PORTAL
We hope that you will find the resources that you need to help you be a VOICE in your teens' life.
Parents: Your kids need you to talk with them about relationships and sexuality. They need you to tell them to wait, to help them navigate the issues they will be facing and to know you will be a safe place if they mess up. The Parent Portal is a resource for you, with articles, website links, and videos to help guide you. Click the pictures below for topics relating to parenting teens.
“There is a fight for the hearts and minds of our youth, who will prevail? We can no longer ignore the blatant disregard for what is right, whole and healthy for our kids. Parents, you are the loudest and strongest VOICE they have, they need you and need all of us to stand with them, to teach and disciple them as they navigate LIFE.”
Catherine Johnson Executive Director of LIFEBRIDGE of South Carolina
