Resource: Talking to Youths and Parents

While looking at resources and programs on other states' mentoring partnership websites, we found Connected Kids.

This is an additional resource for mentoring organizations and mentors. 

Cover of the full guide
As more mentoring programs incorporate parental involvement and embed a little parenting/relationship training within pleasant sessions, these tools will be helpful.

Developed and sponsored by the American Academy of Pediatrics, Connected Kids offers a clearly written chronological guideline for child development and conversation topics from birth through adolescence. The material is presented in various ways, for example, the overview, complete clinical guide, and PowerPoint presentations of the full training module, tips, early childhood, middle childhood and adolescence.

Written for primarily for pediatricians to use with their patients, the topics are practical and necessary. Much can be learned without purchasing additional materials.

We will read through the materials and incorporate ideas in our training for mentors and parents. Share your evaluation of the materials.
