As parents, we spend the early years of our children’s life arranging playdates, wiping tears, kissing boo-boos, reading night time stories and more. If your child was in trouble, it could often be fixed with a hug, a bandage or a bowl of ice cream. You had the childhood years down pat and could manage them with ease.
But now? Well, now you have a tween or teen, and a bowl of ice cream no longer makes everything better. The troubles are bigger and the stakes are higher. It’s terrifying and it feels ever so lonely.
You are not alone.
Whether you’re concerned about the path your child is on, unsure how to handle the daily challenges tweens and teens face or standing in the midst of a crisis, our comprehensive programs for parents and caring adults can help.
