About This Series
Penn State’s Clearinghouse for Military Family Readiness and the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Office of Military Community and Family Policy partnered to develop the THRIVE Initiative, a continuum of parenting programs for parents of children from birth to 18 years of age. The THRIVE Initiative programs focus on three important areas: positive parenting practices, parent and child stress management and physical health promotion. Three of the four programs are available online at no cost to parents.
OneOp offers a series of webinars highlighting the THRIVE Initiative programs and available resources.
