Goal-Setting for Sanity: Easing the transition to adulthood
Add to My Planner

Suki Wessling
Get help setting up a goal-setting system with teens/pre-teens
Date: Every Sa (Jul 1-Sep 5) at 9:30am


(0 May 2017) Suki_BookGoalSettingGuideforTeens2.jpgGoal-Setting for Sanity: Easing the transition to adulthood 7pm. In this free parent workshop, writer and teacher Suki Wessling will lead parents through the preparatory steps of setting up a goal-setting system with their teens/pre-teens. Why goal-setting? We all know that raising teens can be stressful.

 

Academically, emotionally, and socially they are in a time of huge transition and growth. Parent/teen interactions can become minefields where teens inevitably feel that they are misunderstood, and parents find themselves pushing buttons they didn't know were there. Helping teens learn about goal-setting offers new vocabulary and strategies for avoiding or resolving these conflicts. In this workshop, we will identify problems in our households, talk about the basics of goal-setting, and explore how this approach can help improve parent/teen relationships during the time of transition. This workshop will be geared to both homeschooling and schooling families.

 

Held at The Art Factory, 9099 Soquel Drive #15, Aptos. Registration: Please register for this free workshop by using this linkhttp://bit.ly/2p42SRB or email  suki@sukiwessling.com for more information.
