  • Do you sometimes find it difficult to connect with your teen?
  • Do you sometimes wonder what’s really going on in their heart and mind?
  • Do you want to find ways to argue less and connect more? 

Adolescence is a time of big changes and parents sometimes wish they could better understand their teen. This session will be a conversation about ways to communicate that may increase your teen’s willingness to be open with you as well as strengthen their confidence and their well-being. Many accomplished youth start to feel more anxious during adolescence or even discouraged in ways that you may not notice. We will all talk together about strategies you can use to provide the support and connection that will help your teen thrive. You will have a chance to hear from other parents and ask questions of Peace At Home Parenting founder, Ruth E. Freeman, LCSW and bilingual and bicultural retired school social worker, Catina Caban-Owen, PhD, ACSW, LCSW, MPA
