Connecting with Your Teen

  • Wednesday, June 12, 2024, 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

This is an interactive, virtual workshop in partnership with Cornell Cooperative Extension Orange County and RAPP (Relatives as Parents Program) to help build active listening skills and enhance relationships between parents, caregivers and children.

Protective factors are safeguards to help children function well at home, in school, and in their community. Building strong relationships and fostering connectivity are essential to providing strong protective factors for our families.

CCE will be providing 4 VIRTUAL sessions for parents/caregivers to focus on connectivity with your children, your teens, self-connection, and adult/adult connection.

Topics to be covered in this session:

  • Communication strategies that work with teens, 
  • How to get them to open up
  • Fostering strong family relationships

All sessions will take place from 7:30-9:00pm via Zoom. $10pp per session.
