I do not believe that teaching the concepts of child psychology and development to a bunch of teenagers will have any meaningful impact on parenting skills. These are children who cannot even manage their own growth and development.

As an example, most teenagers take a Driver's Ed course which tells them how to drive safely and how to avoid major accidents. If you look at the teenager accident rate you will see that this information is not used or absorbed by the teenagers in any meaningful way.

Tobacco use by teenagers is down from historical levels but almost 25% of high school student admit to using tobacco products despite repeated urgings on the dangers. https://www.cdc.gov/tobacco/data_sta..._use/index.htm
