About This Workshop

Your child is growing up and your role is changing. It’s wonderful to see them realize new dreams and make new goals. Yet it can also weigh on us as parents, as we see our job changing and worry about missing them. The family which we have grown comfortable with is shifting as we now parent an emerging adult.

Our children are also going through their own major transition. We want to support them emotionally and financially, while also teaching them self-care and independence. Join us and other parents as we discuss strategies to make the transition to college  a little bit easier for you and your teen.
