Your kids used to hug you and tell you everything. Now there's attitude, eye-rolling and one-word answers. What happened to that sweet child you used to know? The Sisterhood of Temple Sha'arey Shalom is presenting a winter workshop for the parents of teens and tweens--“FROM EYE-ROLLING TO I LOVE YOU: Repairing the Parent-Teen Relationship.” This event will take place on Monday, January 14, 2013 at 7:30pm in the Temple's Social Hall at 78 South Springfield Avenue in Springfield.
The presentation's guest speaker is Fern Weis, a Certified Life Coach specializing in coaching and educating parents of teens. She will work with you on transforming the parent-teen relationship so that you can effectively raise your children to be confident, self-sufficient and prepared to be on their own when the time comes. Fern will teach invaluable takeaway skills that will help you to uncover the real reason you and your child can’t hear each other and end up fighting instead of talking. You'll learn the exact words to use in gaining your child’s trust and keep her talking; you will also experience how acknowledging feelings can draw your child closer to you.
This special winter workshop costs $5 for admission. It's free for Temple Sisterhood members and members of Temple Beth Ahm Yisrael's Women's League. Desserts, wine and coffee will be served.
