There’s a lot of things going on with the lives of our teenagers – physically, emotionally, socially and psychologically. This is a crucial time to have a conversation with them, and know what’s going on with their lives. How can we best support our teens right now? How can we start a conversation that would make them feel heard, understood and valued?
The best way to be able to do that is to have courageous conversations with them. What does it mean? “Teen Genie”, Elizabeth Bennett will walk us through some ways on how we can connect and understand our teens as much as we can, so we can help them build self-confidence and create resiliency. NOW is the best time to start courageous conversations with your kids, and be their safe haven in this difficult time.
“That’s the space that kids really appreciate, if they feel like they’re being valued, if they feel like they’re being listened to, and they’re worth something. In the trauma that they’re facing right now, it’s mind blowing… So that’s where the conversations are going to be important – to find out what’s going on with them, and asking not necessarily always questions, but engaging in extensions of conversation.” – Elizabeth Bennett
