Before our kids were born, many of us spent hours reading about this new chapter of our lives. We read about pregnancy and all its nuances, as well as nurturing our babies from birth to about age 5. After a while, and especially if we had more kids, the reading stopped. Fast forward to our kids as teenagers and here we are again looking for help and camaraderie. What stumps so many of us is the fact that our kids are faced with so much more pressure and comparison than we ever had to deal with. We are wondering why resiliency is down and anxiety and depression are up. We can pinpoint some reasons as to why this is happening, but this is a challenging chapter and many of us are looking for help.

Parent webinars will consist of bi-monthly Zoom calls for an hour. The call will consist of information, tools, and suggestions, along with plenty of time for dialogue and questions. Parents also need to connect, and even commiserate. The teen years are not easy, but they are doable and the more we can empower and learn from one another, the healthier our kids will be.

Some topics we will cover include:

  • Why paying attention to mental health matters

  • Communication strategies and suggestions

  • Teen confidence and Self-Esteem

  • Navigating technology

  • Stress and Resiliency

  • Positive self-talk

  • Habits and muscle memory

  • Friendships and peer pressure

  • Parenting Challenges and Styles

  • Anxiety and Comparison

  • Sadness and depression

  • Self-care and Connection

  • The power of compassion and gratitude

  • Perception vs reality

  • And more...
