A website called Shoulder to Shoulder- Raising Teens Together is an excellent resource created by the Adolescent Health Consortuim with a mission to share practical, evidence-based information and tools to support parents of teens and other caring adults that can assist in answering some of those difficult questions. Funding for this project was initially provided by the Minnesota Tobacco Endowment for Youth Risk Behavior Initiative, and federal TANF Family Home Visiting/Teen Pregnancy Prevention funding.
