Wednesday, June 17, 2020 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Presenter: Amy Alamar, Ed.D.; Parenting Teacher and Coach, Peace at Home Parenting Solutions

Raising healthy children with an ability to sustain meaningful relationships is a challenge even in the most ideal situations. Add on hormones, attitude, personality, technology and shelter-in-place welcome to the tween and teen years! Dr. Amy Alamar will lead this interactive webinar, which will include a conversation about parenting the independent, emerging adult while still nurturing the playful child within.

We will talk specifically about building relationships during this very unpredictable time. You will have the opportunity to explore making stronger connections through conversation and confrontation, in the context of real-life situations. Participants will be able to:

  • Initiate and maintain an open dialogue
  • Support your child’s social life
  • Broach the difficult subjects
  • Develop an authentic and honest relationship with your child
