Talking to Your Teen: Collaboration vs Collision
› Online Via Zoom
In this 75-minute session, we explore typical parent-child communication issues, including woes and pitfalls. You’ll practice how to give effective praise and feedback that encourages accountability and understanding. Plus, you’ll learn how anxiety can impair effective conversations and how to avoid its trap.
