Growing happy, healthy teens is hard yet rewarding.
Effectively managing teens’ friendships means striking a balance between offering guidance and support while respecting their autonomy and individuality.
Juggling open communication, attentiveness to your young person’s needs and concerns with a willingness to intervene when necessary will ensure their well-being and keep your relationship strong.
Having a useful conversation with your teen – one that counts when it needs to count – is an art.
Our young people need us to listen to them so we can understand them.
Change doesn’t have to be hard. Holidays are proof of that.
It means persistence. It means working with our kids to give them the support they need as they grow and learn to ‘do’ life. We are our kids’ first teachers, our place in their lives is far more influential than we’ll ever know. We owe it to them to steer them through adolescence with love, support, and with good, old-fashioned, parenting.
Parents: what we do makes the biggest difference of all.
I wanted to thank you for the wonderful workshop on Wednesday night. We have had a lot of feedback both from parents and teachers on how much they enjoyed this. They certainly got a lot of takeaways/tools to use when communicating with their tweens/teens
