Parent/teen education workshop

Submitted By Phyllis Castren

Parents want their children to succeed in life. How to accomplish that isnÕt always clear, however, especially if your child is faltering for some reason. A two-hour workshop will explore what success looks like, and present strategies parents can use to help their teen-agers find the right path to success. We also will consider how to best help our teens meet the many challenges they face in high school.

Teen-agers struggle for many different reasons - bullying, learning differences and disabilities, mental health issues, social awkwardness and substance abuse. The list of things that can trip up our teens is long, but that doesnÕt mean they canÕt succeed.

Workshop presenter Elaine Culverwell is a marriage and family therapist with more than 20 years of experience working with parents and children. She is a former teacher in the Fremont Unified School District who spent several years teaching parenting classes for FremontÕs Youth and Family Services. She works with individuals, couples and families in her private therapy practice and continues to teach parenting classes.

Materials will include information on resources for parents and teens. This is a free workshop.
