In this parent workshop, writer and teacher Suki Wessling, author of the teen goal-setting book Homeschool with Confidence, will walk parents through the initial steps of integrating goal-setting with your teens/pre-teens. We will talk about teen development, assessing developmental readiness, integrating collaborative problem-solving, and initiating informal goal-setting.
We all know that raising teens can be stressful. Academically, emotionally, and socially they are in a time of huge transition and growth. Parent/teen interactions can become minefields where teens inevitably feel that they are misunderstood, and parents find themselves pushing buttons they didn’t know were there. Helping teens learn about goal-setting offers new vocabulary and strategies for avoiding or resolving such conflicts. This workshop will be geared to both homeschooling and schooling families.
