Long-Term Parenting Questions

  1. How do I help my teen become capable?
  2. How do I get into my teen’s world and support them in their developmental process?
  3. How do I help my teen feel belonging and significance?
  4. How do I help my teen learn social and life skills such as problem solving and the ability to identify feelings and communicate about those feelings in words?
  5. How do I begin to honor that my teen has different ideas about what is best for her/him?
  6. How can my teen and I use this problem as an opportunity to learn from our mistakes? How can we learn and try again instead of giving up when we make mistakes?


Parenting through the middle and school years is TOUGH. If you are committed to parenting with Positive Discipline, you may feel challenged to know when to lean in, when to let go, and what are reasonable limits to create and enforce.

During this event, parents will learn about the teen brain, tease apart the difference between punishments, consequences, and boundaries – and take away the tools and mindset that matter MOST as you lead your family through this season of parenting.

Join us on Zoom Tuesday, April 26th from 5 – 7 pm PST. The cost is FREE.
