Are you navigating parenting your tween or teen alone? Do you sometimes feel like you have tried EVERYTHING to get your child on board to cooperate and make the right choices? Getting support for your experiences, connecting with others who can relate, and learning specific parenting skills can help you become the best parent you can be. This group happens every 3rd Saturday of each month.
What to Expect
Group time consists of both teaching and interaction. At times the group may focus on a particular topic. In either case, the group dynamic offers a place where you can experience support, give support, and understand more clearly how to relate to your child with specific techniques. These dynamics provide a very powerful environment for change. Remember, the more you give of yourself during the group meetings, the more you will receive. The more honest and open you are, the more you allow for insight and growth.
4:30pm-4:45pm: Sign-in, social/network time with other parents (light snacks will be available). Please avoid treating this time as a flex time to arrive, but instead, as an important time to engage with other parents in a less formal setting.
4:45pm-5:00pm: Resource share and introductions: Mrs. Finch will facilitate parents sharing any resources and introductions (names + one positive parenting technique you did this past month).
5:00pm-6pm: 7 days prior to the meeting, parents will have an opportunity to send Mrs. Finch any short questions or concerns regarding their child and/or parenting. Mrs. Finch will anonymously answer any questions or concerns by first presenting the question to the group. Mrs. Finch will give the group any additional information to help with the situation. New questions must be sent 7 days prior (the second Saturday of each month) of the next meeting by email: email@example.com or upon registering for the next group meeting. Please keep the content very short (no more than a short paragraph).
The days we are not meeting: Practice new skills: This is one of the beneficial traits of this Group versus a workshop. In general, workshops tend to have an accelerated learning environment that usually only benefits the person at the time, not long-term. A group setting gives ourselves time to try certain techniques, adjust, and share with others how things went.
Invite your tween(s)/teen(s) months: May, August, and October will be: Invite your Tween(s)/Teen(s) Month". During this time we will give the children some time to express any concerns they may have and for you to express any concerns as well. It’s important that this is a positive experience for the children and that no child is being attacked verbally.
