Strengthening Families is a six week skills-building program offered through Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. It is for parents to attend with their youth ages 10-14 and is designed to help families build strong relationships. Parents/caregivers learn to use love and limits in guiding their youth, in family communication and in problem solving. Youth learn to set goals, understand stress, and practice skills to deal with peer pressure.
