Building a Better Relationship with Your Teen
We know the teen years can be challenging. Our children seem to become adults overnight, and make decisions about drugs, sexuality and violence before they understand the consequences. So how can you ensure that your teens develop the skills and character they need to not only survive, but to thrive as they gain independence?
The good news is that it is possible to create harmony and stability in your family while raising your teens to lead responsible and independent lives. Staying close and deepening family bonds becomes even more important during the teen years.
DrugFreeAz.org presents Active Parenting of Teens, a FREE 6-session workshop packed with activities, discussions and real-world examples that will provide parents with invaluable techniques and insight into parenting today. Parents leave each session with ready-to-use ideas to make a positive impact on their teen’s life. Topics include drug awareness and prevention, online safety for teens, bullying and depression.
Active Parenting of Teens will provide:
- Methods of respectful discipline
- Skills for clear and honest communications with your teen
- Strategies to prevent risky behavior
- Techniques to be a more encouraging parent
