Reframing Your Teenager w/ Darby Fox
May 25 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm$25
Oh, the teenage years…. Many parents fear this stage. When it arrives, some parents may try to control their teenager, which causes their teen to push back and results in a parent-child relationship defined by conflict and reactivity.
Let’s reframe the way we think about this inevitable and pivotal time of a child’s life. Revered parent expert, child + adolescent family therapist and author of Rethinking Your Teenanger, Darby Fox, will be at Everwell to offer a new approach to create a parent-child relationship based on mutual respect and that provides structure, nurture and encouragement for your teen’s independent growth. If parents approach the teen years with the same thoughtful preparation, sense of awe and wonder, and responsibility that they do in the early childhood years, it can be an enjoyable and rewarding developmental stage that deepens, rather than damages, parent-child relationships.
Join us for an engaging hour as Everwell’s Parent Consultant, Jacqueline Telgheder, interviews Darby about her experiences, philosophies, and strategies in a COVID world. We will make time for Q+A, so arrive with questions. Be prepared to walk away with adaptive advice that works with your values and moral structure.
