Can We Talk? Navigating Parent/Teen Dynamics
Join us in a lively discussion focusing on what teens in the Bay Area are doing, what they want, what they need, and how, specifically, our role fits into that reality. Concerned adults will leave with a clearer understanding of what their teen is experiencing and strategies to best support them in a way that helps them make more decisions that end in honor and joy rather than in regret, guilt, or shame. Come ready to ask tough questions and get real AND HOPEFUL answers.
