Do you have a great kid that drives you crazy? Are you at your wit’s end?
It turns out, teenagers make dumb and impulsive and often very dangerous decisions. Of course, you know this all too well. The real question is how do we respond?
Whether your child is skipping school, sneaking out, using drugs/alcohol, or just being mean, our job is to help them develop self-control and empathy. How we respond to their behavior is critical.
This workshop is going to answer questions like:
When should I give consequences?
What should those consequences be?
How do I get them to open up?
Is this just normal teen/preteen stuff?
How worried should I be?
What are my options if my child doesn’t seem to care?
The overall goal is to respond to your child’s negative choices in a way that encourages learning and personal responsibility while maintaining a loving and genuine connection with you. I know, not an easy task when your fried and just done!
What you can expect:
- A framework to help you and your teen communicate with less anger and more collaboration.
- How to provide consequences that facilitate learning, self reflection and empathy.
- An interesting and worthwhile experience packed with information that’s relatable and will make sense.
- A room filled with other well meaning parents and teens wanting to figure out how to help themselves and/or a loved one communicate better and solve problems.
- Answers to your questions.
