Parents You Matter to Your Teen

StepBrochure CoverThis resource handout supports parents by providing information, resources and solutions regarding various issues that impact teens. Local data from the 2012 Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) from both private and public middle and high school students within Winnebago County is incorporated into the "What local Teens Say" included in each section of the handout. Each teen issue also includes a section that addresses "3 Things You Can Do NOW!" to positively impact teens.

Local parents, volunteers, community agencies and the Winnebago County Health Department worked together to create this staggered handout for the parents of middle and high school students.
