Wednesday, May 17 from 7 - 9 p.m. | "The Secret Lives of Teens & Tweens"


This workshop is a dynamic and fun two-hour presentation for parents and caregivers that actively focuses on what children in these age groups are really thinking, what they fear, why they do not share more, and how adults can effectively support teens and tweens in their lives. This presentation will cover areas such as depression and  anxiety, social media and technology, suicide, ‘acting out behaviors, drug and alcohol use, and more. 


The hope is participants will leave this workshop with strategies you can implement immediately (who has time to wait?!), including:

  • Strategies they can implement immediately
  • New ways of understanding teens and tweens and their behaviors
  • Innovative techniques for engaging teens and tweens
  • Specific language to better elicit productive conversations
  • Confidence and courage
