Operation: PARENT

Operation: PARENT has been in operation since 2006 and was started by a mom of 5 children who at the time, was overwhelmed and insecure about raising teens and preteens in today's time. They are a group of parents helping parents trying to not just survive but to succeed in today's "toxic" culture. They have just published their 5th edition of their Parent Handbook that has been reaching people throughout the country.  Their most recent partnership was with the healing community of Sandy Hook, CT.
