Wondering if consequences and incentives are the only way?
Feel your teenager pulling away?

This class focuses on the primacy of connection in parenting teenagers. Hear from two parent educators and experienced parents of teens about how they stay(ed) connected with their teenagers through these exciting, scary, fragile, powerful years. You will come away with an understanding of the importance of preserving connection between parent and teen, and ideas and inspiration for how to set limits respectfully while preserving your teenager's autonomy, without using threats, rewards (bribes), punishments/"consequences", or any other tools of disconnection. Incorporates concepts from the work of Patty Wipfler, Dr. Gordon Neufeld, Marshall Rosenberg (NVC), and Mira Kirchenbaum, as well as the professional and personal experience of Lyla and Emily.
