Types of PaRent support offered:
- Parent support within a program
- Parent workshops
- Family sessions with parent and child
Without the proper tools and understanding it can be difficult to know how to help our children as they face challenge and undergo life changes. Parent support sessions and workshops help parents to understand the process of growth that is happening for their child as they learn communication strategies, and tools to support them as they move towards adulthood.
I draw from a model of resiliency that has come through many years of listening to the the needs and life imperatives of both youth and parents. Experience has shown me that as youth develop a sense that they are understood and cared for that they develop a greater capacity to face the challenges of their lives. I work with parents to find the right balance between understanding and expectations. Youth need to know that the adults in their lives are willing to lovingly hold them accountable to a greater version of themselves that we can see when they don't.
