Adolescent Brain Development: Understanding Tweens & Teens February 23, 2022
Parenting teens is something many of us fear as parents, and it’s no wonder: Being a teen is complex, and this phase of development often starts before the age of 13! Learn how to understand the many changes taking place in the brains, bodies and emotional centers of tweens and teens so you can better help your adopted child navigate these changes and their intersection with their experiences of adoption, foster care and/or trauma. Often, a parent’s most difficult task is to create a delicate balance of loving and letting go as their children work toward creating their own individual identity. How can parents be firm in deliberately conveying their needs, requests and expectations, while maintaining a positive connection to their child? We will offer some practical parenting suggestions and strategies to support ongoing connection while addressing necessary boundaries and expectations. This webinar is for all members of the adoption constellation and adoption professionals.
