Today’s support group is dedicated to the discussion of why receiving support after your teens and youth come is so important. Denise Royal and Chester Jackson speak to the myths some parents have that receiving support might be considered a sign of weakness or in somehow admitting one is not quite up to the challenge of parenting. Chester and Denise debunk this myth and have a very important discussion about the power of receiving support after the teens and youth arrive. A great discussion that many will find useful to share with parents who might have even the slighest hesitation about attending a parent support group or receiving other types of support being offered to help keep their commitment strong during the hard times.
