Tell Your Parents: Research-Based Parent Education Courses are being offered by Challenge Success
How much help is too much when it comes to homework?
How do I decide which extracurricular activities are best for my kid?
Is it okay for my 13-year-old to be on Facebook every day?
If you’re not sure how to answer these questions, you’re not alone. At Challenge Success, we hear regularly from parents who are trying to be the best parents they can be, but who aren’t always sure what to do. Learn more here: http://www.challengesuccess.org/Parents/tabid/277/Default.aspx
PARENTING GROUP for PARENTS OF TEENS
Facilitated by Elana C. Reinin, MPH, CPCC
Parenting is not easy, and can create a lot of stress in a time when we crave joy and connection with our children. We don’t have many opportunities to share and vent all the feelings we hold about the trials, tribulations, and yes, joy of child rearing. Join other parents of teens for support and sharing of mutual wisdom. You will walk away with new tools in your parenting toolbox, and a sense of connection with fellow parents.
What: A parenting group is now forming in Oakland.
Who: Parents of teens who are interested in:
• Sharing support and wisdom with other parents
• Learning how others handle parenting challenges
• Listening to others, and being heard
• New tools for your parenting toolbox
