Understanding Adolescents: It’s all about the Relationship!
Thursday, Feb 8 - 6:00-8:00 pm
Teton County Library

Research shows that strong relationships lead to positive outcomes for young people. Youth who experience developmental relationships get better grades, have higher aspirations for the future, and are more engaged and motivated in their academics. These types of relationships with parents, peers, coaches, or other caring adults can also help youth attain psychological and social skills and character strengths essential for life when they leave the home.

Please join Rachel Wigglesworth (M.S, M.Ed.) and other parents to discuss developmental relationships, and how we can engage with our adolescents during times when their behaviors and reactions seem challenging. During this interactive workshop, participants will discuss discipline and relationship strategies that are drawn from brain science and research-backed ideas of what adolescents need and what we as parents need to respond calmly to our kids, set important limits, and teach them the skills they need to become thriving adults.

Please come with a discipline or relationship challenge to work on in small groups. Please click here for more information, and click here to register.
