About this Webinar

In partnership with the Department of Defense’s Office of Military Community and Family Policy, Penn State University’s Clearinghouse for Military Family Readiness is implementing a new initiative to empower parents as they nurture their children across developing stages. The THRIVE Initiative includes age-specific programs designed to guide parents in learning and using parenting and health promotion strategies for raising healthy children.

This webinar focuses on the GROW program which is designed for parents of children 5 to 10 years old. The most developed program within the initiative, GROW is offered in an in-person, group-based format with five sessions. Join us and learn how GROW helps parents to learn positive parenting techniques, stress management strategies, and health promotion skills that can be used to help children be happy and healthy.
