SETTING BOUNDARIES WITH TWEENS AND TEENS
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.
