October 9, 2018: Age appropriate expectations and boundaries

It is crucial to be able to learn and understand our kids abilities and with that appropriate expectations at home and school. Now that we have discussed how teens and tween’s brain develop, we will look into what can my child handle at this age? Many parents struggle with getting their child to follow through with chores and expectations at home. It is a common experience to feel powerless and defeated when your teen doesn’t finish their homework or put the dishes away like you asked for the umpteenth time! During this session we will discuss ways to help your teen learn and follow these expectations at home.

October 16, 2018: Social and expectations with friends

What is “okay” to say ‘yes’ to when your teen begs you to let them go here and there with their friends? Maybe they aren’t even asking and just leaving or sneaking out? It is a tough one that many parents struggle with. Especially in this day and age of technology and independence, finding the ‘right’ balance of freedom and structure is difficult, but not impossible! We will look at techniques you, as the parent; can navigate the complex world of teenage friendship and boundaries!
