My name is Jean Schumm and I'm the President and Founder of Operation: PARENT. I started this organization in 2006 with the sole purpose of helping parents stay connected to their teenage children by raising their awareness regarding today's teen culture. Over the course of ten years, the culture has changed significantly, and in an effort to "prevent" tough issues (such as addiction, depression, suicide, etc.) for parents, Operation: PARENT has expanded our reach to parents of elementary age children. I am passionate about building an army of parents who are prepared to stand shoulder to shoulder and raise the greatest generation of teens ever. "Keep parenting" is my mantra!
