Wondering what happened to your child? Remember those days when everything you said wasn’t seen as annoying? Are you questioning your effectiveness as a parent? These are common questions and experiences of those parenting a teen. Try not to take it personally.

This webinar will discuss the multiple developmental challenges your teen is facing, the current technology culture that makes the growing up and parenting role more complex, and ways to relate to your teen in ways that increase positive interactions and decrease conflict. And remember, adolescence is fortunately a temporary condition.
