Prepped and Ready is a presentation to help equip parents for the transition into parenting teenagers.

 

We understand this transition is a time of tremendous change for teens and it can be overwhelming as a parent to know how to help. Prepped and Ready aims to help you learn what steps you can take before a crisis develops with your teenager. We seek to empower you to address the hard topics that can be very uncomfortable and we talk about changes each one of us can make within our own homes to make them safer.

The Prepped and Ready presentation was developed after Shayla Sullivant, MD spent many hours with families in crisis at Children's Mercy. After providing advice to parents on the next steps to take, many parents asked an important question: Why didn’t anyone ever tell me this sooner?

The Prepped and Ready presentation provides a brief overview on the following topics, with an emphasis on suicide prevention:

  • Eating disorder prevention

  • Home safety (including storage of firearms, medications, etc.)

  • Screen time

  • Self-care

  • Substance use (including vaping)

  • Suicide prevention

 

As a parent, you face new challenges that our parents never encountered, but there are steps you can take that make a difference. Prepped and Ready can address problems before they become too big and together, we can take steps to prevent tragedies from happening within our own homes.

Cost: FREE but registration is required

Bonus: Attendees to this presentation will be invited to participate in a research study. One caregiver from each household is eligible to participate. A safety toolkit will be provided to participating households.
