Workshop for parents of teens and pre-teens

Whether you have a household full of teens or just one, you know that it takes a lot of patience, understanding and a few key tools to help keep things running smoothly. Lake Trail Neighbourhood Connections is excited to host, Loving the Teen Years?! A Workshop for Parents presented by Tina Willard-Stepan.

Tina Willard-Stepan is a certified teacher, coach and facilitator, as well as the parent of a teen and a pre-teen. She studied with the Academy for Family Coach Training and thinks that teens are in the most dynamic, creative parts of their lives, and that harnessing and coaching this energy can create more connection in families, schools and communities.

Join her at Lake Trail Middle School on Wednesday Oct. 19 from 6-8 p.m. to participate in an interactive workshop for parents of teens and pre-teens designed to enhance communication skills and create positive, supportive, healthy relationships at home during the teen years.

The workshop will cover teen brain development, coaching language and how to use it with teens, point of view listening skills, making requests and creating agreements with your teen. More information can be found on her website at www.willstepcoaching.ca

Preregistration is required. Cost: $15/participant or $20/couple if both parents attend. Please email laketrailvision@gmail.com or call 250-650-7459 and leave a message.
