President, Jean Schumm

I want to help parents restore their confidence, connect with other parents and create momentum that will change the culture for generations to come!

Years ago I was struggling as the mother of teenagers. For the first time in my life I felt incompetent & unsure of myself as a parent. I eventually realized I could either continue to be a naive & reactive parent, or make an effort to understand today’s culture & become a proactive parent. I also learned that I was not the only parent who felt insecure when it came to raising teenagers. Operation: PARENT has been an incredible blessing to me because I no longer feel insecure or alone standing up to today’s culture. I believe awareness & education will make the difference for all of us.
