Nurturing Parenting

"At Challenge Success, we believe that our society has become too focused on grades, test scores, and performance, leaving little time for kids to develop the necessary skills to become resilient, ethical, and motivated learners. We provide families and schools with the practical, research-based tools they need to create a more balanced and academically fulfilling life for kids."

"The entire Creating Lasting Families Curriculum (CLFC) curriculum series now includes modules for youth, adults, families and couples interested in personal and family growth and healthy development. All CLFC programs have demonstrated strong empirical results in a number of scientific studies published in a variety of peer-reviewed journals. Results include delayed onset of alcohol, tobacco and other drug use by youth, reduced substance use by youth and adults, reduced violent behavior, increases in knowledge of HIV & other sexually transmitted diseases prevention, enhanced communications and refusal skills, enhanced emotional awareness and expression, enhanced marriage relationships, enhanced fatherhood skills, enhanced substance abuse recovery, and enhanced reentry skills and reduced prison recidivism."


The Guiding Good Choices program, originally developed under the title Preparing for the Drug Free Years, is a five-session parent involvement program that teaches parents of children ages 9-14 how to reduce the risk that their children will develop drug problems. ​
