Guidelines and resources for a four-part conference and workshop series on parent education for parents of early adolescents (ages 10-15) are presented. Each part of the series is intended to be a one-day conference containing a keynote address and three workshops. Workshop topics included in the four parts are: (1) Living with 10- to 15-Year Olds: family life, establishing rules and limits, and problem areas; (2) Talking about Sex: parental attitudes, information and resources for parents, and communicating with young adolescents about sex; (3) Risk-Taking Behavior and Young Adolescents: understanding young adolescents, understanding young adolescents and risk-taking behavior, and alternatives to dangerous risk-taking behavior; and (4) Understanding Early Adolescence: overviews of family interaction, sexual development, and risk-taking behavior. The four parts are covered in separate sections which include objectives, guidelines for the keynote addresses and workshops, handouts, background readings, evaluation forms, and bibliographies of recommended readings for adults and adolescents. General guidelines are also offered for planning the series as a whole. The appendices include planning guidelines, logistics, and schedules for each day of the conference series; guidelines for publicity including sample news releases and flyers; and training materials for workshop leaders.
