With Senator Boxer

Senator Barbara Boxer accepts the Leadership Award for acknowledging the launch of the National Parent Helpline

We are so very pleased to offer the National Parent Helpline®, operated by Parents Anonymous® Inc., a new and powerful resource for parents and caregivers of children all across America. For over four decades we have implemented strength-based programs serving millions of families in diverse communities worldwide based on the belief that all parents can empower themselves to create positive change in their families, neighborhoods and society-at-large.

There are over 149 million parents and caregivers of children and youth in the country today. From time to time, parents feel overwhelmed or need someone to listen to them. Actor David McCallum, a parent and grandparent and currently starring in the acclaimed drama series NCIS reminds us that Asking for Help is a Sign of Strength®. When you reach out and call the National Parent Helpline®, a trained Helpline Advocate will provide you with emotional support and link you to services if necessary.

I encourage you to explore this website where you can find support and resources. You will find comprehensive online resources under the section Find Support. Whether you are interested in learning more about how to talk to your teenager about drugs or the benefits of healthy eating or learn how to foster your toddler’s social development, this new resource is here for you. I also want to hear from you about your experience using the National Parent Helpline® under “Share Your Thoughts” on our Home Page. Please join us on Facebook and Twitter.

We are committed to Stand With Families. Our lines are open and we welcome your calls!
