Communicating with Tweens and Teens
For parents of tweens and teens.
Have you tried to “lay down the law,” reason, or negotiate with your teen? Are you wondering how to have a real conversation? Is it a mystery what your teen may be feeling?
This webinar will give you new ways to establish and maintain a strong, loving relationship with your teen. In this webinar you'll:
- gain an understanding of the teen brain to help you prepare and appreciate the developmental process at this stage
- learn new ways of relating to teens and numerous techniques to encourage communication that you can begin using today
- Learn how to shift your mindset from manager to consultant and give up the illusion of control in favor of real influence
Your enrollment includes access to the video recording, an audio version that you can listen to podcast-style, and handouts.
Dave Drazen is a PEP Certified Parent Educator leader and has been taking or leading classes since 2013. He has two active middle school-aged boys. Dave found that PEP's philosophies spoke to him and is passionate about working with parents and caregivers to share the tools and insights that PEP has brought him.
Seth Crothers started leading classes for PEP in 2018 after taking all the
in-person and one-day PEP classes he could get on his calendar. He says
everything changed for the better with his two boys (now a tween and a
teen) after starting classes. A software developer in his day job, he
looks forward to helping more parents improve their home atmosphere and
relationships with their kids.
"... approaching this subject was a great balance of both concern and lightness, the instructor also brought a realistic approach to the topic, (i.e., yes, we're going to have meltdowns and, we're working to reduce them.)"
