Parenting for Independence: Talking to Your Teen

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.

As a parent, have you ever wondered . . .
  • “Can I ever say the right thing?”
  • “What questions won’t make my kid mad?”
  • “How can I get more than one-word answers?”

If so, you are not alone. SOS4Students has strategies and tools you (and your student) can put to use right away.

  • Typical challenges and traps parents fall into
  • Virtues of validation
  • What absolutely not to say
  • How to know what your teen wants: solutions, sympathy, or both
  • Language to help – support without judgement

“Thank you for the informative presentation last night. Loved your reality check, humor and presentation style.” (Donna Hays)

“As a parent of a three, I have attended innumerable presentations on communicating with your teenager, engaging your teenager, jumpstarting your teenager, etc. Your sense of humor, straightforward materials, and message of mutual trust and respect really resonated with me.” (Mara McGrath, VP Programming, Bishop O’Dowd Parent’s Association)

With 30-days' notice, SOS4Students can create a private workshop for small groups of students who are friends/classmates (minimum group size is four).
