How parenting classes work
The facilitator

If it seems there is no other way for your child to pass through the teen years into adulthood without alienating your family, you are not alone.

In the beginning both you and your teenager will feel the tug of childhood vs. adolescence. It is predictable and desirable for there to be some disagreements, communication problems and unwise choices teenagers make while growing up. Your job is to recognize the validity of this transition, establish a positive relationship with your teen and work on not taking this developmental stage as a personal affront to your authority.

As parents, we all have different tolerances for misbehavior and the methods of discipline. But it is never too late to start dealing with your teen in a different way that is more respectful and productive. With teens, it is crucial to find ways to influence instead of control. This online parenting class can take much of the angst out of parenting a teenager. It will give you skills that you can use which are practical and workable. You don't have to be a psychologist to decipher the process. You won't be a controlling dictator. This online Parenting Teenagers class teaches you how using kindness and firmness is the answer to parenting a teen without punishing and grounding.

"Thank you for coming up with this very helpful and insightful material on Parenting Teenagers. The principles you gave helped me a lot in changing the way I approach a problem situation. Now I know better and am now able to relate with my teen on the level that he can understand me and our relationship has become deeper and better. I am more like a friend to him that he can relate to as I change my way of approaching a situation. I think I am a better mom now than when I started the class in so far as relating to my teen is concerned. More power to you and may you will be able to bring this material to more parents. Democratic parenting really works." - Pamela Escara, Texas
