If there was only a roadmap or a training manual to know how to effectively parent adolescent children. The MindsetGo Parenting Workshops provide a supportive and non-judgmental environment to help parents navigate the path to impactful communication with their children. Through active participation, parents learn new techniques to improve their ability to connect and engage with their kids, ultimately improving the whole family’s quality of life. There are no requirements to participate in these workshops beyond being excited to learn and expand your parenting skill set. Led by Mark Altman, participants will join a diverse group of parents who engage in role-playing, group discussion and dramatizations that simulate situations parents face every day.

Mark’s suggestions and ideas regarding communication with teens transformed traditional mindsets and challenged parents to look at their communication styles in a new way. He offered simple and practical solutions to effectively parent teens that we can apply immediately. The workshop was a huge success!
I attended one of Mark’s Parenting Your Teen workshops and thoroughly enjoyed it. I really liked the fresh ideas presented, and the role-play conversations. The activities, modeling and collaborative discussions really worked and made it fun. Mark made the most of the varied personalities and perspectives and kept the discussion interesting and engaging.
