Communities that Care: Develop positive connections with kids

The Communities that Care Prevention Coalition of Centre County operates on the premise that, to develop healthy children, we need to minimize risk factors related to violence, antisocial behavior and substance. The premise simultaneously calls for adults to maximize protective factors — those things that buffer young people from the negative effects of these risk factors. One powerful way to develop protective factors in your children is by developing positive connections with them, in whatever ways we can, big or small. These are the connections that build protective factors.
