Millions of parents have achieved success with Active Parenting!
Active Parenting of Teens is a comprehensive parenting program for parents of preteens and teens. The skills you learn in this class will give you confidence and courage to meet the challenges—and savor the joys—of your children’s teen years.
Learn the basics of parenting a teen, plus some in-depth discussion of today’s hot topics
Written by parenting expert Dr. Michael Popkin, this class will explain what’s going on in your teen’s head, which will help you figure out why they do the things they do. You’ll learn how to open up the lines of communication, encourage cooperation and responsibility, and discipline effectively. You’ll also explore techniques for solving the inevitable problems that crop up. You’ll learn 10 strategies for preventing problems relating to drugs, alcohol, violence and teen sexuality.
Video, discussion, and activities make for a fast-paced workshop
Each session of your Active Parenting of Teens class features entertaining video scenes that demonstrate common parenting challenges and solutions. Your class leader will allow plenty of time for group discussion and activities so you can share ideas with the leader and other parents, too.
In the course of the program, you will also explore the following topics:
• teens & technology (the Internet, social networking sites, etc.)
• the latest in teen drug use prevention (including prescription drugs)
• teen bullying: how to spot it, how to handle it
• raising teens in a stepfamily
