“Lazos Fuertes” (in English, Strong Bonds) is a project at El Futuro aimed at providing parents of teens and pre-teens with communication and parenting strategies. The goal is to support parents in strengthening the bond they have with their children and to improve their communication.

These three videos present strategies for some of the topics the therapists at El Futuro have noticed are the most concerning to parents: how to listen to their children so they will open up about how they are feeling, the basics of good communication, and how to manage the use of technology at home.

The videos are in Spanish and are 30 to 45 minutes long. Each video provides an explanation of the topic, practical steps and strategies to implement at home, an example, and a summary.

We invite you to learn with us and share with those who may benefit from it.
