Unique, powerful, nation-shaping. These are all words used to describe this amazing course for the whole family. Researchers have seen that this course helps to protect youth against substance abuse, teen pregnancy, contraction of HIV/AIDS, failure at school and more. All this is linked to the powerful way that the Strengthening Families Course uses games, role plays and communication exercises to develop the family’s muscle at communication, care for each other and discipline. Research has also shown that the course drops rates of child abuse by building parents empathy, love and nurturing of their children. We would highly recommend any family to take part in this life-changing course.
