Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff
October 1 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Maybe you don’t like your tween’s haircut or choice of clothes. Or perhaps your son didn’t make a team or get the part in the play you know s/he deserves. But before you step in, look at the big picture. Easier said than done I know, but the alternative sets you and your teen up for several unhappy, unsatisfying years together. Mark will help you see the parenting opportunity in front of you by inspiring you to look past your frustrations and disappointment. This program shows how your re¬actions and decisions directly impact your children’s confidence and willingness to confide in you about a multitude of things moving forward. You’ll always be there for guidance and comfort, but we encourage you to challenge yourself to step back, release your grip and trust the lessons you have taught while letting your child know you’re there for them.
Through active participation and collaboration, you will learn new communication techniques to parent with increased skills, confidence and competence. Led by Mark
Altman, participants will join a diverse group of parents who engage in skill-building activities, stimulating groupdiscussion, and role-plays that simulate situations parents face every day. Improve your ability to support your kids throughout their adolescence and expand your parenting skill set.
