Tools For The Teenage Years (Connecticut Version)

Home / Tools For The Teenage Years (Connecticut Version)

Are you looking for camaraderie, support, and advice on parenting teens?

This group offers Moms a safe, comfortable space in which to enhance their parenting tool kit while developing connections with other, like-minded Moms—all under the guidance of a caring professional.

Here are three questions that will guide our conversations as we discuss the challenging teenage years:

  1. How can we regulate our own emotions as parents?
  2. How can we better connect with our adolescents?
  3. How can we learn to coach and influence rather than attempt to control our teens?
*Specific topics TBD based on group member input, but our focus will be on topics pertaining to teens.
