Boundaries between Teens and Parents
Featuring Christopher Bibby, Psy.D., local psychologist

Boundaries are healthy limits parents set on teens. But teens, by nature of their maturing evolution, are a moving target. This process can produce blurry lines, confusion and frustration. Learn more about boundaries, how to establish a strong connection with your teen (so boundaries stick!), and when/how to modify them over time. Ample time will be allowed for questions, answers and discussion. This FREE program is offered for parents of middle and high school teens.
