Parenting means being responsible for someone other than yourself. A teen parent is responsible for their baby and homework, chores, possibly a part-time job and answering to their own parents if they live at home! All of that can be a pretty overwhelming challenge.

Where do you go for support and information?
Summertime will bring a handful of near-absolutes to the Santa Clarita Valley. Ants will invade kitchens. Lawns will turn brown. Electricity bills will break hearts.

And for the kids, summer is practically paradise.

It is meant to be a place of reflection and remembrance.

Each tree will be inscribed with the names of a young person with a Santa Clarita connection, killed in a traffic-related crash.
