Handling Conflict - Developing Open Communication with your Teenager

Does your teenager talk to you? Would you like them to talk more AND hear you more? Do you bump heads with your teenager? What is behind your teenager’s emotions and how can you handle them?

Teenagers are at a stage in their life when they want to be treated as adults and make their own decisions. Often parents feel, or their behavior indicates, that they are not ready to do so, which causes conflict. Sometimes they rebel and sometimes they withdraw leaving parents not knowing what is happening in their lives. Learning to communicate openly with them through this emotional period in their lives is vital to get them through this transition into adulthood where they can become reliable, successful adults.

On this workshop you will learn:

  • How what we are feeling has a direct influence on the result of our communication
  • How to develop rapport with your teenager and establish a safe place for open communication
  • The steps to effective conflict resolution
  • Understanding your needs and your teenager’s needs and how to satisfy both of them
