DISCOVER PARENTING -2012

Discover Parenting is an educational program sponsored by United Services for Effective Parenting-Ohio, Inc. (USEP-OHIO) that features classroom study and culminates with a photo project. The lessons, written by teachers, allow high school and middle school students to explore critical thinking and feeling about the issues of safe and responsible parenting. Students conclude the project by submitting a photo with a caption related to the contest theme:
"How Does It Feel to be a Safe & Responsible Parent?"
In May, Ohio advocate/leaders will assist with judging entries displayed at the Riffe Center for Government and the Arts in Columbus. The goal of the display is to bring Middle and High School students' work to the Ohio legislators, whose decisions impact their lives on a daily basis, in a place where all Ohioans can view it. Please go to our Discover Parenting page for more details.
