About This Workshop

In this live, online interactive workshop, you’ll learn practical strategies for navigating the delicate balance between supporting your teen’s emotional well-being and fostering their independence. 

It’s easy to have breakdowns when talking with teens, especially about their struggles. Many of us want to help our kids to feel better and even fix their problems…which actually doesn’t help. Come explore insights into the emotional landscape of adolescence, including common challenges and developmental milestones. This workshop will help you recognize the barriers to connecting positively and apply strategies to improve your communication during this important and sometimes complicated developmental stage.

While this workshop is designed for parents of tweens and teens, we will focus especially on older teens as they prepare for the launch into life after high school.
