: Strengthening Families Program: 10-14 is currently registering Fort Dodge 6th graders and their parents for the communication based prevention program scheduled to begin on Monday, October 1, 2018 and Thursday, October 4, 2018. The focus of the 7 week program for parents is to help them establish - love and limits -  for their adolescent children. Sixth graders will develop skills in handling peer pressure and stressful situations. Research data collected over the last sixteen years has shown that in the communities including Fort Dodge who were using the Strengthening Families Program youth were less likely to begin substance use (such as alcohol and marijuana) during the middle school years, had better problem-solving skills, were more likely to refuse substances, and received more consistent and less harsh discipline from their parents. The program is offered free of charge to the families who participate. Sessions are held once a week for seven weeks on Mondays at AFES Youth Center, 712 3rd Street NW and Thursday evenings at First Presbyterian Church, 1111 5th Ave. North. Registration forms can be returned to their school office. Online registration is available at www.extension.iastate.edu/webster.
