We know that parents are the #1 influence in a teen’s life, but what if all you’re met with is resistance? It’s time to shake up our communication approach! Although compelling research overwhelmingly shows that parents are the strongest influence in a teen’s life, sometimes those in a parenting role do not connect and communicate effectively because they do not have the skills & support to do so. Come learn the inner workings of the teen brain, why they do what they do, and how to raise your kids not only to survive – but to THRIVE.
Join us for our summer Parents Matter event. Open to parents, grandparents, caregivers, any adult that comes in contact or will come in contact with adolescents. We will be providing education, support & encouragement to our community as we unite to raise healthier teens — learn the reality of Citrus County statistics, and gain valuable insights into our teens’ world.
Topics covered include:
- Teen Risk Avoidance Approach
- Directive Approach (Expectations & High Standards)
- Whole Body Health (PIESS: Physical, Intellectual, Emotional, Social, Spiritual)
- Teen Brain Development
- Love Languages
- Rules vs. Relationships
- Effective Communication Strategies
Interactive presentations by Aspire’s Co-Founder Katie Neely & Guest Speaker, Bill Kagey.
