Description

Mirror, Mirror: Do you see what I see? - A Fresh Look at Parenting our Tweens and Teens will be presented by Jennifer Swanson, EdD, LPC.

Parents know the importance of healthy family relationships and strive to develop strong connections with their children. However, this can prove challenging at times, especially during adolescence. Sometimes it seems that just as we’ve got our kids figured out, they become teens with a new set of rules and more attitude than Patti LaBelle! Other times a parent's own set of unresolved issues or emotions get in the way and can cause conflict. It can be really difficult to model a healthy, controlled response during times of intense disagreement. And yet, that is a skill set parents need to develop if they expect teens to learn it too.

Mirror, Mirror: Do you see what I see? - A Fresh Look at Parenting our Tweens and Teens, presented by Jennifer Swanson, EdD, LPC., is intended for parents of tweens or teens who desire to have better family relationships and are willing to take an honest "look in the mirror" at themselves and opportunities for improvement. Parents will learn ways to; better respond to a teen's poor attitude, widen their views, cope with their own emotional reaction, and more effectively communicate. So please join us with a mind open to learning and a willingness to try something new!
