Teenagers are growing up in a very different world than even the previous generation. They are in transition between childhood and adulthood. They are seeking autonomy and at the same time still quite dependent on their family. In this seminar we will explore “Who is that stranger in your house?” and talk about what they are going through in life.  We will look at how to be a more effective parent and how to connect with our kids in this important stage in life. 

We will look at the issues of: 

  • Sexuality 
  • Ending the homework hassle 
  • Peer pressure 
  • Rules and boundaries 
  • Bringing out the best in our teens 
  • Choosing which battles to fight 
  • Raising teens to be responsible adults 
  • And much more

This seminar won’t give you all the answers but will be a wonderful road map to help successfully guide your kids through the rough waters of adolescence. This seminar is perfect for parents of pre-teens, teens and even young adults. 

 

“Youth today love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for authority, no respect for older people, and talk nonsense when they should be working. Young people do not stand up any longer when adults enter the room. They contradict their parents, talk too much in company, guzzle their food, lay their legs on the table and tyrannize their elders.” - Socrates, 500 BC
