Parenting Strategies for Teens and Tweens

Refresh your parenting approach and learn new skills for the novel challenges of raising teens and tweens during challenging times.

In this workshop, designed for parents of children aged 9 – 19, parents will learn the changes that happen in this unique 10-year span of life called “adolescence”.

Parents will discover new parenting approaches and skills to keep their relationship strong during this tumultuous time of change and prepare their child for a successful launch into adulthood.

We will cover:

  • Developmental changes and psychological issues
  • Switching parenting styles from teacher to coach
  • Communication and problem-solving skills to end power struggles and keep your relationship open, harmonious and close
  • Reducing high-risk behaviour
  • Navigating social media, gaming and technology
  • Discuss any personal issues you bring to the class

This workshop will be recorded, so if you can’t attend in person, you can watch at your own convenience for up to three weeks after the workshop.

*Please note, all sales are final and tickets are non-refundable.
