While the name Ransom Teens obviously speaks to the fact that we serve teenagers, we realize that sometimes parents are looking for resources, tools and information to help them be better parents for their teenagers.

Here you will find some simple resources to help parents navigate raising a teenager.

The Center for Parent/Youth Understanding is a nonprofit organization committed to building strong families by serving to bridge the cultural-generational gap between parents and teenagers.

At a time when an already confusing youth culture is changing quickly, CPYU helps parents, youth workers, educators, and others understand teenagers and their culture so that they will be better equipped to help children and teens navigate the challenging world of adolescence.

Jonathan McKee started out as a Youth Pastor and is now a Pastor to Youth Pastors and Parents as he offers articles, tips and resources to help Parents navigate the wonderful world of all things teenagers.

Jonathan shares from experience as he and his wife Lori gone through the same waters with one son and two daughters who are now in college.

HomeWord seeks to advance the work of God in the world by educating, equipping, and encouraging parents and churches to build God-honoring families from generation to generation.

Jim Burns founded HomeWord and has now partnered with Doug Fields to offer some of the resources out there for parents to strengthen their marriage and strengthen their families.
