Active Parenting of Teens™

Parenting teens and tweens can be the Best of times and the Worst of times.  In this class you will learn what’s going on in your teen’s head, which will help you figure out why they do the things they do.  You’ll learn how to open up lines of communication, encourage cooperation and responsibility, and discipline effectively.  We will also explore techniques for solving the inevitable problems that crop up.  The skills you learn in this class will give you more confidence and courage to meet the challenges, and savor the joys, or your children’s teen years.
