Helping Your Child Make Healthy & Positive Choices: Talking To Teens & Preteens

September 20, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm CDT

Helping Your Child Make Healthy & Positive Choices: Talking to Teens & Preteens will teach foster and adoptive parents the importance of open and ongoing dialogue with their preteen or teen about the tough issues they will face throughout their adolescent years, with the goal being to help their child to begin making healthy choices early in life.

After completing this training, participants will be able to:

  • Articulate the importance of initiating dialogue early on with their preteen or teen about tough issues and setting healthy limits.
  • Identify practical ways to approach communication about tough topics, such as sex, drug/alcohol and violence and identify common signs that a child may need professional help in dealing with issues.

ASK-VIP trainings are expressly designed to meet the needs of foster and adoptive parents. Skilled trainers who have lived experiences with fostering and adoption provide these trainings in a virtual group setting. There is 1.5 hours of ongoing, elective foster parent training credit available for Kentucky’s foster parents.

Create an account or log-in to register for this training. A reliable internet connection and a smartphone, tablet, or computer with web camera is needed to participate. If there are two adults in the same household that want to participate in this training, each person must register separately. Foster parent training credit is administered based on the duration of the meeting and each attendee’s participation. Training credit is only available if you have not participated in this training within the past twelve months.


If you have any questions about this training or how to register, please email ask@uky.edu or call 859-257-7361.
