This chapter focuses on effective parenting. To securer Safe Passage, adolescents should live in households that are relatively stable and serene, with parents who can attend to their needs. The goal for parents in this strategy is to help children form strong attachments to responsible adults so that children can successfully move through adolescence into their own adulthoods. One of the awkward issues that parents should deal with includes the controversial issues surrounding sexual development. Parents have multiple and complex roles to play in the Safe Passage Movement. They must offer leadership in paving the way for children, recognizing that the demands of the 21st century requires new approaches to solving human problems.
