Established in August 2008, Common Ground was founded by loving parents dedicated to making the most up-to-date, practical and effective parenting techniques easily accessible for even the busiest of parents.
Common Ground was inspired by Big Bear’s Lighthouse Project and partners with them in their mission to create “Child Honoring Communities.”
Dedicated to STRENGTHENING FAMILIES
Parenting has always been as challenging as it is rewarding. Some of the challenges parents face today are different than generations past. Parents and educators everywhere are finding that young people don’t respond to the same type of discipline as they did a generation or two ago. There has been a cultural shift. Common Ground’s groups, workshops and network of parents help one another learn to apply innovative parenting techniques that are effective with today’s young people. Our goal is to help guide and support parents who are interested in raising responsible people who are fun to be around, while maintaining an interactive and close relationship with them.
If you are experiencing more severe difficulty with your adolescent, Common Ground can also help connect you with professional support and resources. You may also want to check out our “Help for Struggling Teens” section.
Common Ground serves all families, whether struggling with a child or not. We envision Common Ground as a blanket of support around our families….a community of families helping other families flourish through the everyday spectrum of life’s challenges.
