Consciously Parenting Pre-Teens and Teens Online Course
Are you parenting a pre-teen or a teen? Need a little guidance and support to handle the ups and downs of this special time?
Teens and pre-teens can be a lot of fun. AND they can also require a lot of you in different ways than they did when they were younger. Consciously Parenting pre-teens and teens requires lots of breathing, lots of listening, lots of realizing it probably has nothing to do with you and everything to do with what's going on for your child. And recognizing when you've made it about you and taking the time and making the space for you to see what it's bringing up for you. When our kids enter into this growing time, it brings up our own experiences (for better or for worse) and creates an opportunity for us to heal together. <3 This online course with Facebook group and live Ask-Rebecca-Anything Calls will be focusing on understanding your preteen and teen, including basic brain development, strategies to help you stay connected as you grow together, and help for handling the inevitable ups and downs of parenting children as they become teens and young adults. You'll leave with a new way of looking at what you're seeing and tools to help your children stay connected to you while they're navigating the bumpy and sometimes messy road of adolescence.
