Parenting Tweens & Teens From Your Wise Mind
OWL Room

Raising a happy and successful teenager is a challenge for any parent, even the most patient and wisest among us. Parenting adolescents requires all sorts of skills that most of us don’t naturally possess. Using “Wise Minded Parenting” by Dr. Laura Kastner we will learn:

  • The latest research and knowledge about what our tweens and teens need to thrive.
  •  Practical strategies for acting and responding mindfully and effectively throughout this rich and challenging period.
  • How to encourage progress towards the 7 essentials of happy, healthy tweens/teens. (Secure attachment, self control, academic success, social thriving, emotional flourishing, strong character, physical health)

Join Indigo Lewis in this “Wise Minded Parenting” class where you’ll learn how to tap your “wise mind” to calmly navigate even the stormiest of parenting moments.
