In this age of emails, texting, and social media, parents are looking for ways to have
meaningful dialogue with their teenagers. Adolescence can be a difficult time for both
teens and their parents, however it is a time when communicating is extremely
important. While teens are off of their routine during the summer months with
employment or just spending more time away from home, the need for
communication is critical.
Parents are invited to listen to a panel of professionals and community members
engage in conversation about keeping a healthy relationship with children during the
teen years. There will be an opportunity for questions and answers.
