The Phases of Teenagers - From ages 11 to 18
To help your teen, you have to understand your teen. Just when you feel you are done figuring them out at age 12, you feel it's not over at 14, 15, 16, 17 and yes 18! This session will address EACH vital stage according to the ages of teenage development. Expert and research-based information with tips and tools will be shared with practical strategies that you can start to apply after the session. You will learn: 1) What exactly is their mind and body undergoing? 2) What your teen needs from adults and grown-ups? 3) Key actions to provide what they need. You can be the authentic parent you want to be by learning how to be "mindful" of what is actually going on in your teen's life and brain." The goal is to be aware of the progress towards helping yourself, not perfection! Location: Das Tower, Dots and Links Center - Floor 18, #1803. This is around the corner from the Third Place café.

What we're about

Come and be part of the Moms of Teens group where you will have the opportunity to:

1) Share your personal and collective experiences of parenting the "teen" phase of your kids.
2) Gain insight into the Teenage Brain, the facts, myths, realities.
3) Discover "How to Talk so your Kid understands what you mean?"
4) Discuss how to maintain healthy boundaries for yourself first, and your family?
5) Experience group coaching to feel supported and gain inner strength for yourself.
6) Leave each session feeling energized and refreshed to become a "mindful mom."

… and most importantly, have a safe place to know you are not alone! There is no need to suffer silently through these years - be an informed mom and learn how you could be a "present" mom.

Just when you think you have grasped your parenting style, the adolescent years change everything. According to research, "The brain is not fully developed until age 21, and in some cases 25." Which makes it a tumultuous time understanding kids who cannot understand what is going on in themselves.

I have over 15 years of experience working with youth, aged 13 up to college going students, and have successfully helped them by studying their "behavior" - what works, what does not, what motivates them, and what kind of support they are "actually" looking for.

If you find yourself doing everything, and still feel "bad" or "pushed away" this is the place to know that "all is well".

You can be the authentic parent you want to be!
