When you are parenting a pre-teen, coping with problematic or potentially problematic behavior it can be stressful. Sometimes when you’re in the thick of it with your pre-teen you can feel isolated, worried or frustrated. Ease your stress & get out of the “grip” of worries, disappointments & upsets. Discover together with other parents & Jill, how to teach your pre-teens to be resourceful and resilient in the face of life’s challenges and temptations. Come & vent your feelings in a constructive way, share some laughter & your stories, all while calming your anxieties about your pre-teens exposure to technology, drugs, alcohol, body image issues & dangerous friends.
Learn from one another & get help problem-solving so you can be a more informed, effective, and crucial resource for your teen. Being able to share with other parents about what has worked or not worked for you in a confidential and supportive group can leave you feeling more reassured & confident as a parent of a pre-teen.
“I already love this group! After one session I see that Jill is so knowledgeable and experienced. She comes from a place of compassion and a true desire to help parents and families. I felt very safe sharing personal info with the group and got a lot of really great advice and support. It’s sounds so cliche, but just hearing that others are having similar challenges with their preteens reminds me that I’m not alone. It makes me feel like with time I’ll figure it all out. I am really looking forward to next month’s meeting.”
