Highlights the importance of parent-child relationships and features ways to strengthen the capacity of families to make crucial contributions to their children's welfare. This issue of OJJDP's Journal Juvenile Justice presents three articles focusing on parenting. Article 1 features a column written by Senator-elect Hillary Rodham Clinton, which discusses several initiatives and resources that have come out of the White House Conference on Teenagers. Article 2 outlines the Strengthening America's Families Initiative, addressing the effective and enduring strategy of improving parenting practices to prevent juvenile delinquency. Article 3 describes the efforts of Team H.O.P.E., an organization dedicated to helping the parents and families of missing children cope with the challenges they face. The In Brief section spotlights recent publications on parenting and youth, including America's Children: Key National Indicators of Well-Being, which reports statistical indicators that reflect the Nation's progress in taking care of its children.
