Raising Teens While Building Executive Functioning Skills & Teaching Healthy Habits

With all the information available from a variety of sources, it’s so hard to know how exactly to support your teens. Teens are already faced with so much pressure, so when they feel the weight to make good decisions online and in person it can feel extremely overwhelming.

Should you make every interaction a teachable moment? Are you supposed to praise the effort and not the result, or is it the other way around? Can you compliment your teen or is that wrong now? Should you let them struggle or will that mess them up for life?

This is not a workshop that will tell you what you’re doing wrong and what to do instead. Besides, that expert opinion will likely change. This conversation is about you, your teen, and your home.

You will leave understanding why teens behave, think, and feel the way they do. You will leave with foundational knowledge about executive functioning, one of the primary building blocks to making good decisions and regulating emotions. You will learn how to motivate them and teach the skills they need to move toward feeling good about themselves. Isn’t that what we all want? Ultimately, you will learn how to help both you and your teen make more informed decisions when faced with new challenges and when things change again
