Parent Training

Supporting Parents

Top 20 began 20 years ago by teaching a class called TLC (Thinking, Learning, and Communicating) to high school freshmen. These students immediately asked us to share Top 20 concepts and strategies with their parents. From our beginning, we have sought ways to support parents in their crucial responsibility of raising their children.

Spark and Stitch Institute

Top 20 is continuing in this effort by partnering with Dr. Dave and Erin Walsh of Spark and Stitch Institute. For many years Dave and Erin have provided parents with important and helpful information for understanding adolescence and effective strategies for parenting teens during these challenging times. This information and these strategies are now available here.
